This bar opens in the evening behind the shelves in the lobby of The Modern. If you go for their happy hour, drinks and food are a deal, especially by Hawaii price standards. Later in the evening gets very active with live music.

Very cool hideaway bar and restaurant here, complete with a sliding bookcase! We have been here several days and both eaten and drank here. It is well worth the visit.

Wow. I visit this place every once and awhile but this last Friday was a blast. The only tall dark and handsome man behind the bar was so entertaining and on point with drinks. All I have to say is Ramon made it night.

Visited the Study for happy hour (weeknights 6-8). I was disappointed that the happy hour cocktail specials were different than the literary-themed ones on the menu. Overall decent drinks/food in a nice setting for a happy hour.

All these empty tables but if you're a couple you have to stand as they're just waiting for large groups to make money out of. We've been in the hotel for 5 nights and the same every night. Challenged them about this, they don't care,...More
