Booze and late night drinks could soon be served to customers at Wolverhampton Market as council chiefs try to boost visitor numbers.
The market near Cleveland Street could play host to a mix of events, with longer opening hours and alcoholic beverages on offer.
It comes after Wolverhampton Council applied for a premises licence for its £4.9 million market, which opened to the public three months ago.
A council spokesman said: “All Wolverhampton’s market sites hold an alcohol and entertainment license, enabling them to hold alternative events.
“The former city centre market in Market Square was licensed and the new market off Cleveland Street has been designed to accommodate many future events to boost the visitor economy in the city centre.”
The market, which relocated from its former Market Square base, currently opens between 7.30pm to 4pm Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Council officers have applied to have the possibility of extending opening hours any day of the week, so the market could open anytime between 7am and 12.30am.
