Venue Features
The Scene:
THE MODERN HONOLULU sets a new standard for lifestyle hotels with an innovative urban resort design that reflects sophistication and style with a laid back twist. With two levels of outdoor dining space and two stunning pools that overlook the Pacific Ocean and marina, the views from our property are second to none. Decorated in natural tones and rich woods, our design creates a soothing sense of organic luxury with the character of a home away from home.
Design:
Designed by architects George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg and landscape designer Deborah Nevins, THE MODERN HONOLULU is a tropical oasis for the contemporary guest. The highly stylized property offers conspicuous details including a Herbie Fletcher surfboard installation at the Front Desk and a massive bookcase that rotates to reveal a swanky lounge scene in The Study. From the moment you step on property, your senses will be stimulated - from our signature plumeria scent in the lobby to the music that can be heard around property, including in the pool.

Eats & Drinks
Food, Restaurants, Cafes, Bars & Lounges
Food, Restaurants, Cafes:
Enjoy two restaurants, three bars, in-room dining and catering services directed by Executive Chef Keith Pajinag. Sample Pajinag’s signatures at The Grove and The Passage at THE MODERN HONOLULU. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner (and featuring an expertly-curated wine list, signature cocktails and island microbrews), these lounge-inspired al fresco spaces will tempt your senses of taste and style. Chef Pajinag incorporates all organic ingredients, with liberal amounts of locally-sourced ingredients, in his signature dishes. Seafood is delivered fresh from area waters six days a week. Produce is routinely sourced from the Ho Family Farm, located nearby on Oahu’s North Shore. Any essential element that Pajinag and his team can make better – fresher – is made in-house: Breads are baked daily; mozzarella is crafted and salmon is smoked on site, making THE MODERN HONOLULU'S some of the best restaurants in Waikiki.

RAVISH at THE MODERN HONOLULU, with its edgy design of raw colors entwined with mixed-media wall murals, creates a setting of urban sophistication for groups and events. The dining room provides an upscale, gourmet experience, while the outdoor seating and alfresco dining delivers a more relaxed atmosphere.

THE MODERN HONOLULU is also proud to host the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival every year.
Bars & Lounges:
Grab a refreshing cocktail at our Sunset Beach or Sunrise Pool bar. Enjoy live music in the evening as the sun sets on the pool deck or head over to our speakeasy lounge bar, The Study, for a sexy cocktail experience.

Home to Hawaii's hottest nightclub, ADDICTION Nightclub, extend your evening and dance the night away to Hawaii's best DJ's and jam packed club (Thursday-Saturday).
