Pubs and nightclubs could be turned into art exhibition halls through a scheme announced by the Government.
It's part of a plan to get more people into towns and cities during the evenings.
The pilot scheme is worth €2.6 million to support entertainment during off-peak times.
A maximum of €10,000 will be available to each applicant.
There are two strands possible to apply through - one for licensed premises like wine bars, restaurants and pubs that could trial cultural events from Monday to Thursday after 6pm.
While shops, cafes and galleries could apply for funding for shows between 6pm and 9pm every night.
Live music, comedy nights, poetry shows, plays and art exhibitions could be put on with the money.
Culture Minister Catherine Martin said, "I want to support and develop a thriving environment at night in our cities and rural towns.
"This scheme aims to attract people into our towns and cities later in the evening and night time by offering a range of cultural activities, in a variety of venues.
"It will also support businesses in trialling events during the earlier part of the week when it’s typically quieter with a view to developing a more long-term sustainable offering in the Night-Time Economy.”
