I've been here a few times on my travels and was really excited for the steampunk event tonight and dressed up and went the whole nine yards but the music is so disappointing, think 1920's Felix the Cat all night!! No variation no imagination, pretty...More

Being from Los Angeles with a wide variety choices to go clubbing I was really interested to find a club in Ybor that plays a variety of music that isn’t top 40 or hip hop . This club plays a decent mix of dark 80s...More

It's just not that "goth" any more. You are more likely to see the next generation in jeans or boat shorts these days. Not as many people who are genuinely part of the scene. Furthermore, I was refused service by the bar guy on the...More

Friendly and fun goth industrial scene club with lots to see and do with frequently held theme nights. Suggest Uber in lieu of parking in Ybor.

First time in Tampa, and I will say that I enjoyed my night at The Castle! From the drinks to the dancing. This is a place that you can truly let you hair down and a "no judgment" zone.

Ok so we went there on a regular friday, first visit for us, but our friends go there often. The people there are friendly and welcomes all kinds of dresscodes, as unclothed and clothed as you like. The outdoor dancefloor was really nice, could be...More

The Castle is an awesome club for anyone alternative. This is the second time we have visited for the Steampunk Ball and it has been equally exciting each time. The GoGo dancers are absolutely wonderful and they put on amazing shows. The music is great....More

It will be hard to put my love for this iconic Ybor City nightclub into a coherent review, but I will try! For me, The Castle defies labels! It has been called a Goth club, a gay club, a fetish club, and a vampire club!...More
