the study lounge / hidden happy hour

One of the top bars in Waikiki

Like 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 7 pm to 10 pm. Enjoy wine specials and $5 Jameson shots from 7 pm to 11 pm during Wine Down & Whisky Sundays and you're also invited to get Fresh every Tuesday night starting at 6 pm. Fresh features an extended musical lineup with both live performances and DJs 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?

    JEREMY CHENG & GUESTS

    7 pm - 11 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.

    MELANIIE

    7 pm - 10 pm

    Melaniie has been singing before she could walk. Her burning passion for music eventually pushed her to follow her dreams, which eventually landed her a rendezvous with Stevie Wonder. She started singing as a featured artist in the latter part of 2012. When it comes to music, Melaniie says, “It’s the only thing that feels right. It’s the one thing that can make everything in this whole wide world OK. It soothes my soul.”

    ALEX OASAY

    7 pm - 10 pm

    Hawaii’s diverse crowds have long influenced Alex Oasay’s music. “I try to play music that everyone will enjoy, no matter where they’re visiting from,” says Alex, who decided to make music his living three years ago. Before turning full-time musician, Alex was busy “tuning up cars.” Now, he prefers to tinker with MODERN music — a mix of early rock, modern pop and Hawaiian influence.

    SIMPLE SOULS

    7 pm - 10 pm

    Simple Souls brings the perfect blend of strumming and drumming to The Study on Wednesday and Thursday evenings. These two soulful female musicians call their style “aggressive acoustic sounding music,” and the songs are typically stripped down to their barest elements for a truly organic (and modern). It’s not like any other slack key you’ll find on the Waikiki strip, Simple Souls musician Jenn Wright says.

    IZIK (featuring Ekona Ravey on bass)

    7 pm - 10 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.

    JASON LAEHA

    7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

    Jason Laeha, who got his musical start playing the ukulele at age 10, always knew he wanted to craft his own musical style, making him the perfect MODERN Musicain. Laeha moves with impressive ease between classic 70s, trendy 80s and 90s pop before exploding into a Bruno Mars cover song. A crowd favorite — Jason’s version of Eric Clapton’s Cocaine, complete with an over-the-head guitar riff.
