New, Awesome Bar Alert: The Night Light, Opening Tonight in Jack London

Rising from the (depressing) ashes of Sweet Jimmie’s at 311 Broadway is the Night Light, founded by Ruby Room, Radio, and Kitty’s alums John Nackley and Doug Kinsey, and set to grand-open tonight. It’s a dark, Forties-inspired, vaguely libraryish (in a good way) little place, with velvet wallpaper, tons of dark wood, and gorgeous chandeliers; I went there last night and it’s pretty great. Eventually, Nackley and Kinsey hope to have DJs, dancing, live music, and an upstairs member-only lounge, but for now, there are six beers on tap — including two from Linden Street and Trumer Pils — as well as an unshowy-but-solid cocktail list, reproduced just for you below. No food, but Nation’s is right next door, just’ sayin.
