Tucked behind bookcases and computer banks in the Modern Hotel’s lobby, this aptly named bar is a white, leather-bound respite from much of the neon-lit colors of Honolulu watering holes. The bar menu is also a departure from the usual Hawaiian scene. No coladas or fruit-laden drinks here. Instead, bartenders mix rather souped-up classics like the Vesper and subdued interpretations of myriad flavors and cultures, taking Japanese, Korean, and Mediterranean spirits and melding them almost flawlessly. A subdued atmosphere during the day and early evening and a club-like vibe at night make The Study a drinking destination with something for everyone.
