Nice way to end the day

We went there after a hectic shopping day before getting ready to head out for dinner. What a nice way to end the day.

The waiters and waitresses were just hanging out at the bar chatting away to themselves, we're waiting to order another drink as our drinks have been empty for more than 30 minutes. We had to go to the bar and order for more drinks yet they want the tip money from us? I don't think so. We left as soon... More

We booked a table but didn't really need to at 6pm. There are plenty of tables, even during the happy hour 6-8pm. The bands start at 7pm and it gets a little busier. It is little more expensive but comparable to most bars in hotels like it. The food is good and cocktails are nice.

Located in The Modern Hotel, it's a cool space with a great bartender. The craft cocktails are excellent, they also have beer if you'd rather. Very comfortable seating, and there was live music when we were there on a Saturday night.

Hidden behind a bookcase at The Modern Hotel, The Study opens at 6pm for cocktails, wine and a delicious light menu, The steak and Rosemary Fries were fabulous for a light meal and the service friendly and unpretentious

This place is an absolute gem. It hosts the best live music talent on the island and the atmosphere and vibe was super cool. We were recommended this place by friends and it did not disappoint. Each night the live music is different and we went on a Thursday night and Friday night. I highly recommend the Rock and blues... More

They seem to do good job with the drinks offered on their short menu but I was disappointed with a drink that I ordered that was not on the menu. We went there twice and the 2nd time there was entertainment and it was a pretty good duo.

Great little place for an afternoon cocktail or after dinner drink! Playing some live music on selected days which packs in the crowd, nice vibe and good service!

My girlfriends and I stumbled over this place on our first night in Honolulu and we were literally Addicted to the chilled atmosphere, live music, super friendly staff and all the Modern Hotel has to offer. The manager Gary made sure our stay was nothing short of pleasant, and Jeremy (solo performer) played all our special song requests, the other... More
