A group of Vermont nightclub owners aim to open for business on the property formerly housing the Outerland nightclub this summer.

Partners in Ya Dude LLC, who operate Nectar’s nightclub in Burlington, Vt., want to sublet the property from Bar LLC. the company owned by Barry and Mona Rosenthal, who operated Outerland for three years until last fall.

First they need the approval of the Martha’s Vineyard airport commission, which owns the property, and also the Edgartown selectmen, who issue the liquor license for the club.

Five people representing Nectar’s met with an airport commission subcommittee last Friday; the subcommittee recommended the proposal to the main airport commission which is set to make a ruling May 15.

A date is yet to be set for a hearing on a new liquor license in Edgartown. The property and nightclub business remains on the market for $845,000, marked down from $1.2 million.

Mr. Rosenthal could not be reached for comment yesterday.

A proposal sent to the Edgartown selectmen’s office by owners of Nectar’s nightclub describes a similar business to the Outerland.

“We intend to operate 17 Airport Road pretty much as Outerland did. We will use our own name Nectar’s . . . an established and successful brand in Burlington, Vermont.”

The document states that entertainment will be predominantly composed of live bands, with some comedy and spoken word shows and an occasional speaker. It also details a menu of light pub food.

Subject to securing the relevant permits, Nectar’s owners plan to open in late spring and to operate with a seasonal liquor license, closing by Nov. 30. Opening hours for the club would be 5 p.m. to 1 a.m., five days a week.

The building was constructed in 1979 and was home to the Island’s best-known club, the Hot Tin Roof, which was part-owned by musician Carly Simon and attracted international acts. (Ms. Simon has retained ownership rights to the name.) But after three years of operating as a seasonal business, Outerland closed last fall amid financial difficulties. The closure leaves the Island currently without a nightclub or large music venue.

The Rosenthals bought the Hot Tin Roof in 2005, paying $910,000 for the building and club business.

Another proposal, to turn the building into a delicatessen and seasonal package store, was submitted to the Edgartown planning board in February but withdrawn before the hearing date in April.
