Reviews for North Light

A small bar that offers amazing cocktails ! Each of the cocktails are very detailed and carefully crafted . The food options are limited though ( and that is why it gets 4 stars instead of 5) . The host, servers .. everyone was very friendly. They have a covered patio too . My favorite here is the Jaguar shark . The honest mistake and pony boy was nice too. Though the food options are limited , the umami tots with bacon just hit the right spot !

So...totally came here thinking North Light's main thing was being a cafe but realized it's more of a restaurant with a cafe aspect on the side. What I mean by that is that they seem to have more food-food options than cafe drinks. But that didn't stop us from having a pretty relaxed and pleasant cafe experience in their outdoor dining area. We loved how clean, shady, and structured (really organized) the setting was. Hold up. Lemme go back and describe the interior. The full review
north light is a hidden gem in temescal. we'd walked past it a few times and thought it was a book store, but soon we discovered they're not only a book store and record shop but also an incredible cocktail bar. they have really great happy hour prices between 4-6 pm ($9 for cocktails normally $12-13, bites such as hamburgers and tater tots for $6-9) and a helpful staff (especially accommodating for families which is always appreciated). pro tip make a reservation as the full review
