Thank you James. Unfortunately, I am using 4.5.1 and moving up might take some time. In that
case, I assume creating a single column, single row table would be better? 
Thanks again.

In the latest Phoenix release (4.5.2), you can just do the following, as the FROM clause is
now optional:SELECT CURRENT_TIME()

How can I get the current time from Hbase? 
I can use Phoenix function current_time(). One way would be to query this column against any
table as - SELECT CURRENT_TIME() AS TIME FROM TABL LIMIT 1; Or, I could possibly create a
single row, single column table and query against that table for current time.
Is there a better way than how I am describing it above?
