Iowa City Downtown District has launched its search for a new nighttime mayor on its website following the departure of Angela Winnike.

The nighttime mayor is a position that Iowa City introduced in April 2017 and was one of the first places in the United States to do so, according to a news release from the Downtown District. The position was inspired by similar jobs in European cities, including Amsterdam.

Winnike was the Downtown District’s first nighttime mayor; she left in mid-December after serving in that position for nearly two years to take a new job in Los Angeles.

Along with the newly established Nightlife, Arts, and Culture Council, the nighttime mayor will be a full-time position focusing on nightlife and arts-driven marketing, according to the Downtown District website.

Downtown District Executive Director Nancy Bird said on the website that the position is designed to work closely with cultural venues, restaurants, and hotels.

“The nighttime mayor position has offered us a great opportunity to better serve our businesses operating after 5 p.m. and work with student organizations looking for alternative programming,” Bird said. “We know our nightlife is an important asset.”
