The exterior of the South Bohan Safehouse.

The South Bohan safehouse, is an indentical apartment building situated at the southern end of Joliet St, it is Niko Bellic's second safehouse in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Getting the safehouse

The safehouse was originally Mallorie's cousin's apartment, but Mallorie gave it to Niko and Roman after the Broker Safehouse and Roman's Depot were burned down during the mission Roman's Sorrow. It is the only safehouse that is available until new safehouses are earned in Algonquin, after the missions Hostile Negotiation and The Holland Play (the latter depending on a decision made by the player) and Alderney, after completing Ray Boccino's missions and either Truck Hustle or Smackdown (GTA IV).

Despite being unlocked later in the game, the safehouse is already accessible to the player at the beginning of the game, through the rear door, as the front door is locked. The player cannot save the game, or use the wardrobe, but can still watch television. The parking space can also be utilized before the safehouse is unlocked. The safehouse may also be entered via the same entrance in The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony, although the television is not usable.

Amenities

It is similar to the Broker Safehouse, but a bit larger. There is a Honkers strip club poster and various items lying all over the apartment, including cola bottles, and Burger Shot items. It also has a futon for saving the game. Various furniture includes a table with fold-out chairs, an armchair near a TV, and a wardrobe to store Niko's clothes. A preacher or hippy may occasionally soapbox across the street from the safehouse. It is notable for being the only safehouse with a back door.

Trivia

  • On the outside, across the street, one of the men preaching has the voice of Virgil, an antagonist from The Warriors, another Rockstar Games game.
  • Unlike the Broker Safehouse, the South Bohan Safehouse has less gang presence and more of a seedy atmosphere, with several prostitutes around Chase Point. Although it is located within the Spanish Lords territory, they only tend to be armed at night, and will not attack the player. The area also tends to be more dense and crowded with people in the street. However, after exiting the safehouse a police officer can be seen chasing a member of the Spanish Lords on occasion.
  • A Madd Dogg CD, along with an OG Loc CD can be found on the floor near the bed.
  • A Burger Shot meal can be found on the dining table.
  • There is a ThriftEX DVD player and coffee machine in the apartment.
  • There is a rasta-colored bong near the TV, as well as a Pißwasser ash tray.
  • Also near the TV is a picture of Niko and Roman standing outside the apartment. Somewhat incongruously, Niko is wearing clothes from Modo in the picture, which is inacessible at the time that the safehouse is unlocked, as the bridges to Algonquin are still closed.
  • Just across the street from the safehouse, there is a spot where a soapboxxer will commonly spawn.
  • The pizza box under the bed has the Well Stacked Pizza's logo on it, which was a restaurant chain featured in GTA SA, and was going to be featured in IV, but was replaced by Pizza This...
  • Unlike in GTA IV, the front entrance to the Safehouse is locked Shut in the EFLC. The Only way to go Inside is to use the back entrance as there is no exit to the roof. This also applies before obtaining the safehouse in GTA IV.   
  • The radio station playing in this Safehouse is IF99, although you can enter through the back-door in EFLC, the radio in the Safehouse is switched to San Juan Sounds . It is assumed that the player in EFLC isn't meant to enter the Safehouse. In EFLC, International Funk is replaced with K109 The Studio.
  • Accross the street from the safehouse where the preacher and hippy usually soapbox, there is an "abandoned" vacant house with running electricity. There is a myth saying pedestrians who walk into the house often disappear into a pool of blood and there are multiple pools of blood in the house.
  • In the abandoned house where the preacher soapboxes, there is a handgun and a pool of blood in the hallway on one of the upper levels. This possibly indicates suicide.
  • Behind the abandoned house, there is an unused yard. There is another abandoned building that looks like a failed/discontinued construction project. The windows are boarded up, the tiles and floors look new and most doors are boarded up with debris all over the halls. It is unclear who are residents of both these homes and why they seem vacant.
