Reviews for North Light

Been trying to make it a point to leave reviews on some of the really quality places that I visit and North Light is for sure in my top 5 fav places in Oakland. Quality drinks, Quality people, Quality food and top tier ambiance for introverts and extroverts alike. You won’t regret visiting this somewhat of a hidden gem on Oakland’s busy Telegraph Ave. Offers great seating via a cozy patio in the back, seating out front (newly added since the pandemic) or a dimly lit bar/ full review
North Light is one of those bars that you walk into and you're like "Am I cool enough to be here right now?". There's a certain ambience and vibe that just feels comfortable but cool. The amount of books, music, and good drinks are enough to draw anyone in off the street on a weekend night, but what I love here also is the brunch. I live in the neighborhood and walk over maybe every few weeks (admittedly it's usually in my pajamas, because I'm apparently that kind of person now) full review
Been back 2 more times in the last week. I can't get enough of this place! My favorite ambiance. Sat at the bar on Tuesday near the record players. Bartender very kind as well. Didn't try anything new on Tuesday, besides the lavender hibiscus limeade, very flavorful. Burger was hella good as always! Yesterday(Friday) I was here a third time and this time during happy hour (bless), had to get a reservation and luckily they had availability when I called in the day before! Got full review
