OWNERS of a bar in the city centre have launched a bid to extend their opening hours.
Huis, in Elm Grove, Southsea, is appealing to Portsmouth City Council to change its licensing terms.
Bosses at the Belgian-inspired bar and kitchen hope to extend opening times by an extra hour.
As part of the proposals to the council’s licensing sub committee, the bar aims to serve food and alcohol later and have recorded music playing an extra hour in the week.
Under the application, alcohol would be served from midday to 1am from Monday to Thursday, midday until 3am on Friday and 10am to 3am on Saturday and 10am to 1.30am on Sunday.
This would represent an hour’s extra trading each night, with an hour and a half on Sundays.
The other change to the current hours is that alcohol would be allowed to be sold during the bar’s breakfast service.
The licensing meeting is being held on January 29 at The Guildhall.
