Summary This paper explores the way that the state of Victoria in the late 20th century, in common with other advanced liberal regimes, produced the space for a free market in alcohol to use Nikolas Rose's term. This was in a country which had traditionally regulated alcohol production, distribution and retail sales for the health and welfare of the society as a whole.

From the mid 1960s a series of Royal Commissions and inquiries recommended the progressive dismantling of regulations related to the availability of alcohol in the state. This culminated in the 1985 Nieuwenhuysen Inquiry into alcohol regulation which was given the specific mandate to produce the conditions for what has been termed the Night Time Economy. This paper will trace some of the historical, cultural and economic changes which have happened and how these changes can be understood as an example of providing the space for a market in alcohol.
