Thanks For The Mammaries – Saying Goodbye to Prince Machiavelli’s

Steve Kaplowitz.

Nearly 40 years after it was first built, the building known as “The Castle” will soon be no more. It first opened in 1975 as “Taffy Jones,” a themed restaurant/disco club that later became Crow’s Castle and then the Iron Tender. In the mid to late 80s, the restaurant was turned into Prince Machiavelli Lounge, a gentlemen’s club that was known in its later years as the Westside Show Lounge. I was not living in El Paso during the Taffy Jones era, but I did work at KLAQ/KSII/KROD radio, which was located across the street at Pinnacle (now home to the Sun Bowl Association). Like so many El Pasoans, I do confess that I spent more than a few nights at Prince in the mid to late 1990s with some buddies. It will soon be torn down, but never forgotten.
