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 6:00 p.m. each day, the lobby 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. Each evening, THE STUDY features Happy Hour each day of the week from 6 pm to 8 pm and has live music Wednesday through Sunday from 8 pm to 10:30 pm.

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 6 or more email our team at The Study to make your reservations and ensure your night is a memorable experience.  

Introducing - Whiskey Club Wednesdays

Join us at The Study at THE MODERN HONOLULU for Whiskey Club Wednesdays. To become a member of the club simply sign up at The Study on Wednesdays and follow three simple rules. The first rule is that you can ONLY sign up on Wednesdays. The second rule of Whiskey Club is that YOU CAN ONLY SIGN UP ON WEDNESDAYS! The third Whiskey Club rule is that you must follow The Study on Instagram (@thestudymodern). And while you can only sign up on Wednesdays, you can get whiskeys checked off any day of the week.

As a club member, your goal will be to try/buy 50 of our different whiskeys.  The Study will stock 50+ bottles of whiskeys; an eclectic blend of American Bourbon, Rye, Canadian, Irish Scotch and Japanese whiskeys. Upon trying/buying any 15 different whiskeys, club members will be awarded a whiskey glass etched on one side with The Study logo, and on the other side with the members name to be stored at The Study for their exclusive Whiskey Club usage. Upon trying 50 whiskeys (5 of which must be top tier), club members will receive a Whiskey Club Wednesday shirt and their name added to our "Wall-of-Fame" plaque.
