A genuinely mixed crowd of revelers flocks to S.O.B.'s for polyrhythmic, south-of-the-equator beats: Cuban salsa, Jamaican reggae, Brazilian samba, African pop, even Indian Bhangra (laced with break beats) at DJ Rekha's red-hot Basement Bhangra party. Many prominent touring hip-hop acts also stop by. Fruity drinks, naturally, fuel the all-night bop; try their flavorful mojito or caipirinhas. The dinner menu's Latin offerings run the gamut from traditional (feijoada) to nuevo (Carribbean double-cut pork chop). But the smattering of small tables consigned to the dance floor's perimeter serves as a hint that the real point is to burn calories, not consume them.


Learn your moves at free Latin dance classes on Friday nights at 7pm.
