Can you see the North Light at the end of the tunnel? It’s all about the warm ambiance and welcoming atmosphere at this new Oakland bookstore (that serves up oh so much more). Far beyond a place that simply stocks up on insightful and entertaining pages, it’s also a cafe, bar and record store that sports a heated patio. Martini with your main read pulled off a shelf curated by a well-respected celeb (like Patti Smith or Rebecca Solnit)? North Light is already a favorite for dates and solo outings; its menu of dining options and cocktails complement the fine array of books, rounding out the business’s fresh, eclectic table of contents.
