It's a Tampa landmark for a reason. Dark, twisted and pierced, it opened in 1992, and it kept going even as shiny new Centro Ybor opened across the street. Today, with all its spiderwebs and candles and curtains, the Castle is Tampa Bay's most popular goth club, by a wide, wide margin. But it's not just about Skinny Puppy and Bauhaus; on Mondays, the Castle offers one of the best '80s nights around. Be on the lookout for costumed characters like Batman, Peter Pan and an older gentleman called the Senator, a Castle regular and Ybor veteran who hangs out in lingerie.
