A new nightspot could be coming to the Wollongong CBD, with plans lodged to open a small bar in Globe Lane.
The development application before Wollongong City Council outlines plans for a bar that would operate until midnight Sunday to Wednesday, and to 2am on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The venue - which is listed under the name Bevanda Bar in the application - would employ up to nine people, three of whom would work full-time.

"The proposal will enhance pedestrian amenity and pedestrian comfort in Globe Lane with the increase in activity," the application said.
"The social environment for the community will be enriched with the increase in pedestrian movement."
The application said the central location would encourage the use of public transport, with a bus stop 200 metres away and Wollongong train station 700 metres away, as well as cycling and walking.
There were no people living in neighbouring buildings, it said, but noise reduction measures would be implemented.
The site of the proposed bar sits between La La La's bar and live music venue, and a vacant shop.
David Jones and a vacant cafe lie opposite, while adjoining the rear are clothes shops.
It comes as the owners of popular Wollongong pizzeria Kneading Ruby opens their new sister eatery, Restaurant Santino, in Globe Lane.
The development application for Bevanda Bar is available for viewing and comment on the council's website until June 15.
