Edgartown selectmen approved alcohol license changes for two downtown businesses at their Monday meeting.

Edgartown Books, which operates the Behind the Bookstore cafe, has applied to demolish a small addition to the bookstore, and add the space to the outdoor patio seating area where the cafe is now licensed to serve alcohol. The planned change would add 210 square feet to the patio area, where the owners plan to install a six-seat raw bar.

Selectmen Margaret Serpa and Art Smadbeck vote to approve the application. Selectman Michael Donaroma abstained, because he did not attend a previous meeting where the proposal was discussed.

The board also approved an adjustment to the alcohol license for the restaurant Isola. Manager Peter Sullo told the board he wants to host occasional events for up to 150 people under a 20-foot by 20-foot tent on the patio along Church street.

“It’s just for private functions,” said Mr. Sullo. “I don’t want a tent there all summer. We might do four or five a year, maybe.”

Selectmen voted unanimously to approve the application.

Alcohol licenses are granted for a specific area. Any change to the premises requires a new application which must be approved by selectmen and by the Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission.
