the study lounge / hidden happy hour

One of the top bars in Waikiki

ike a sexy librarian, The Study isn’t what it immediately seems. It waits demurely behind a wall of books in the lobby of THE MODERN HONOLULU.

At 6 p.m. each evening, the bookshelves rotate to reveal The Study’s neutral palette and clean lines, whispers of THE MODERN HONOLULU’s subtle sophistication. That’s your invitation to get to know The Study – a knockout cached in understatement.

Cocktail tables are barely an arm’s length from endless sectionals, lush ottomans and melt-into-me chairs, but you can always command a seat at the bar – the drinks here are legendary. Try the Sailor Jerry, a mix of spiced rum and orange curaçao served on the rocks and enhanced by fresh-pressed lemon and a cinnamon-tincture rim. Each evening, The Study features Happy Hour from 6 pm to 8 pm Monday through Friday,  along with live music from 8 pm to 10:30 pm. You're also invited to get Fresh every Tuesday night starting at 6 pm. Fresh features live performances as well as unique flavor combinations of organic, locally sourced ingredients in a new menu with pizza and punch. Stop by tonight and enjoy the most popular place for live music in Honolulu.

VIP service at The Study is not limited to small groups. Celebrating a special occasion with friends and family? Or just getting together for a night out? For groups of 10 or more The Study takes reservations to ensure your night is a memorable experience. Click here to make a reservation.

    JEREMY CHENG & GUESTS

    8 pm - 10:30 pm

    Sundays at The Study have become the place where musicians go to listen to music, largely thanks to Jeremy Cheng and the talent that seems to tag along with him wherever he goes. From the guys playing alongside him to the area musicians that congregate in the crowd, Sundays at the Study often become a Who’s Who Open Mic Night, only you have to be extremely talented to mix it up with Jeremy and his gang. After four hours of Jeremy's live music, a DJ will keep the good times going starting at 11 pm.

    Hawaii’s Jeremy Cheng has a certain knack for hitting the high notes during his gigs in The Study at THE MODERN HONOLULU. As a steady, gigging musician, Cheng is one of the lucky few who makes a living as a career player in Honolulu.

    IZIK (featuring Ekona Ravey on bass)

    8 pm - 10:30 pm

    When asked how he would define his personal sound and genre, Moreno admits that he wants to break free of what “certain types of music are supposed to sound like.” He believes that no song should be performed the same way twice. Preferring to let the interplay between his emotions and the surrounding ambiance drive the sound of his music and performance in any given moment, Moreno views it as a constant process of creation between his voice and the energy of the space he is in.
