大人のためのモダンな時間をあなたに……。バーテンも惡くないですな!

My version is - "A modern pastime for mature persons, that is what I offer you......"

  • "Modern" is far from what 「モダン」 means here. That is just what bilingual dictionaries would tell you. Try looking it up in a better monolingual dictionary. – l'électeur Aug 20 '17 at 14:51
  • OK, Yahoo told me it can also mean "fashionable". So it's "fashionable pastime" here? – Guest Aug 20 '17 at 15:30

I don't know how semantically モダン shifted from English "Modern".

Probably they want to make stylish ambiance which is playing Jazz and have the customer enjoy the time.

  • +1 but I need to add a few words. 「モダンな」, in this context, has the combined meaning of "fashionable", "refined", "chic", etc. and that is the kind of time the bartender strives to create/provide for you. Learners should really forget the word "modern" here. 「モダンな」 certainly has that meaning as well, but not in this context as it would make no sense to say that the bartender wants you to have a modern time. – l'électeur Aug 27 '17 at 11:29
  • Thanks for the comment and taking time to read. But I assume it is not strange to bring artistic thing the word "modern" has. Anyway, it might interrupts. – user25382 Aug 27 '17 at 13:55
