Does the Gold Coast need a Night Mayor? Matt Petropoulos - Twitter: @MattPetropoulos

Gold Coast City Council has shot suggestions that the city needs a "Night Mayor" to promote and grow after-dark activities.

Council responded on Monday, claiming it was already heavily involved in the night economy, through the live music task force and supporting extended trading hours.

It came after Queensland Tourism minister Kate Jones admitted to she was open to the idea.

London, Paris and New York all have what is known as a 'night tsar'.
