What are good compact digital cameras for low-light photography?

A few years ago before DSLRs were affordable I was into photography in a big way and mostly did low-light and available-light shooting. Mostly, I did this through fast lenses (f1.7, etc.) rather than through higher ISO film – and definitely never with flash!
Is there a compact digital camera that could get me somewhere similar these days? I'm genuinely out of touch with digital cameras, but I want something I can carry around easily in a pocket, not a DSLR.
I would love to be:
- Pointed to a website on which I can sort cameras by lens speed
- Pointed to specific cameras that people have had good success with
- Pointed to any other pointers!
I know about photo.net but it's a bit of a chore to wade through that, which is why I'm turning here first! Thanks.
