S.O.B.’s Keeps the Music Going at 200 Varick St.

Live music venue S.O.B.’s, also known as Sounds of Brazil, has signed a lease extension for its 7,548-square-foot space at GFP Real Estate’s 200 Varick St. in Hudson Square. The venue has been a tenant at the property since 1982. 

Jeffrey Gural and Rhonda Singer of GFP Real Estate represented both S.O.B.’s and ownership.  S.O.B.’s, which had seven years remaining on its lease, signed an extension to coincide with the organization’s 50th anniversary in 2032. 

“Privately owned entertainment venues like S.O.B.’s are vital to New York’s recovery and longevity as a cultural destination.  As a landlord that works closely with countless nonprofits and entertainment- and theater-related organizations, we are proud to be a part of that effort,” said Gural, GFP chairman and principal.  “S.O.B.’s has been a wonderful tenant these past 40 years as it continues to push the envelope in bringing world-class performers to New York City.”
