A good place to share.

First of all, we made a reservation with some hours of anticipation and for other reasons, we arrived a little bit late to the place but they waited for us, so we considered that as a pretty kind gesture of their part. The prices are a little bit more higher than other places but they're ok for a... read more

Went with another couple for salsa night, so not typical Brazilian. Lots of good music, both live and recorded, hour long salsa lesson, drinks that actually contained alcohol, local street parking, OK food, and with a Groupon only $65 a couple. Can't beat that in NYC. And when my friend had question about our bill, manager came right over. Question... More

Was in the city for my daughters sweet 16 party, which was supposed to be on a dinner cruise, but the limo company we hired made us miss the boat. This was starting out as the worse night of my life. We thought of places to try to go to, and headed over to SOB's. This was the best choice... More

Came here after waiting for a very long awaited hiatus for Sol Village, hosted by Eric Roberson to come back. Bragged about this showcase to my friend from Cali for years, finally got her to come out and catch the show. All night the vibes were cool, the show was soulful and Mr. Roberson as usual was the most entertaining... More

I went to SOB's for my sister's birthday and I had a blast ! The food was delicious and the drinks were well made. The waiting staff was on top of everything and the entertainment was great. They had a live band playing music and you are able to get up and dance . I Highly recommend this place!!

A friend took me to S.O.B.'s for an R&B showcase last night. I've always heard about it, but I've never been. We had dinner while the show was going on and it's a really cool space. I love it when an establishment has employees that look and act like they actually want to be working there. It's a plus that... More

I have to be clear - i have not eaten here so I'm only commenting on the bar and overall atmosphere. Maybe years ago this place used to be more Brazilian flavored because right now it's anything but! I went there twice for Salsa dancing on Friday nights. It was overly crowded with absolutely no room to move around. They... More

I booked Sounds of Brazil for my 65th Birthday celebration. For an EXTREMELY reasonable cost, they planned an event that was better than I ever expected!! They set up the tables for my 46 guests beautifully with gorgeous colors and flowers on the table. The live music was wonderful and wasn't too loud that it overpowered our guest's conversations.
