A town centre bar in Dereham could be turned into flats.
A planning application has been submitted to Breckland Council to turn Number 40 Bar, on Norwich Street, into four flats.
Number 40 Bar closed in August last year after being reopened by Kate Greeves two years ago.
It was formerly known as The Lounge.
When opening, in 2014, Mrs Greeves said she was aiming to bring a 'city feel' to Dereham.

She said: 'I wanted to offer Dereham something a bit different. We used to go out here quite a bit, because my husband is a Dereham boy, and it hasn't really had much going on lately.'
The bar opened on Friday and Saturday nights and put on a variety of live music events, as well as DJs.

After closing on August 27, a statement on Number 40 Bar's Facebook page said: 'Well that's it, we're done. Thank you to everyone that came in last night to say goodbye, we had an epic and very random night.
'It has been an absolute pleasure meeting you all, we will miss it and we have made some truly amazing friends in the process
'For now if anyone needs us we'll be hibernating and catching up on two years of late nights and lost sleep.'
