Fodor's Expert Review SOB's
The initials stand for "Sounds of Brazil" (no, not what you—and everybody else—might think), and this is the place for reggae, African, and Latin music, with some jazz gigs sprinkled in. Tito Puente Jr. sometimes holds court here, as does calypso's Mighty Sparrow when he's up north. Don't miss the Haitian dance parties, the after-work Latin-groove happy hour, or the bossa-nova brunches. There's usually about a $20 cover charge, and while there is a food menu, it's better to just come for the music.
