The Kami Inn has the support of council in seeking to remain open until two hours later.
At its latest regular meeting city council approved a resolution of support for an amendment to the liquor primary license to the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch after no public comments were received.
If successful, the venerable Kami Inn, downtown at 354 Victoria St., will have a closing time at 1 a.m. Monday to Sunday. Its current closing time is 11 p.m. Monday to Sunday, opening at 9 a.m.
The pub has an existing liquor primary licence allowing a total patron capacity of 125.
