Club Reports: The Castle, Prana, Level III (Tampa)

During this past weekend's Tampa visit there wasn't time for club hopping per se but when you're in Ybor one must make time for The Castle!
DJ Paradise (Communion After Dark) was in the booth playing Industrial & some 80's New Wave during my hour-long visit.
The place was already pretty jammed when I got there around 11pm.
Not pictured here but quite a few people were dressed in superhero costumes.  There always visually-stimulating scenery at The Castle.
And when someone started an impromptu burlesque dance, a good time was to be had by all!
A very popular club on the Ybor strip is PRANA which as you can see offers 5 levels of clubbing including the rooftop.  I've never gone inside because it's always been a Hip Hop club.  It mostly still is but it appears that on Thursdays some House music can be found on levels 3 & 4.  Might have to try it out.
New club Level III is just down from Amphitheatre.  They've got legendary DJ AK1200 (USA) playing there on the 20th so this is another venue apparently into the EDM scene.
Located in a long-vacant spot where the 70's retro club Platforms used to be, Ybor City now has its very own Buffalo Wild Wings.  Bob was happy!
