UPDATED Nov. 10, 6 p.m.: The Miami City Commission will decide if establishments operating on Wynwood real estate will be able to serve liquor until 5 a.m. instead of 3 a.m. during Art Week, from Nov. 30 to Dec. 4th.

Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado and Miami City Commissioner Keon Hardemon sponsored the resolution to extend the hours, which will be heard at the city’s next commission meeting on Nov. 17. It would affect properties located in the Wynwood Café District, an irregular shaped district where up to 40 liquor serving establishments are permitted to operate.

The ruling would also allow businesses to play amplified music or host live bands outdoors until 3 a.m. Normally, the cut-off time for outdoor music is 11 p.m.

A spokesperson for the Wynwood BID said there are no plans to permanently extend hours for Wynwood bars and clubs.

Art Week is highlighted by Art Basel Miami Beach at the Miami Beach Convention Center, with many satellite fairs planned for Miami and Miami Beach. Collins Park in Miami Beach also will feature 20 international artists exhibiting outdoor installations.

Correction: A previous version of this story had an incorrect hour for the desired extension of music.
