A national restaurant and bar chain has applied to the council for a premises licence to open in Norwich.
Cosy Club, which has 25 locations nationwide, has targeted the former NatWest building on London Street for its latest branch and has submitted a licensing application to Norwich City Council.
It comes after the company submitted a planning application looking for permission to turn the building into a restaurant. The decision is still pending.
The licensing application, which was received by the council on May 29, states: 'The operation will be food-led Continental style casual dining restaurant/cafe/bar. Opening will be all-day everyday with food available throughout the day and evening. There will be a focus towards being family friendly.
'Any music played will be limited to background only. No licensable entertainment is being applied for.'

As well as having a branch in Ipswich, it also has locations in Bristol, Liverpool and York – among others.
The chain is run by a Bristol-based company called The Loungers Ltd, which is also responsible for a chain of restaurants called The Lounges.
The company website reads: 'At Cosy Club, we serve up a sense of being somewhere special with a hint of nostalgia. Think mansion splendour meets village hall eccentricity.'
