KPO opened its doors in 2010 after a dramatic makeover of the iconic Killiney Post Office. This impressive urban landmark was created to seamlessly house a post office and a spacious café bar. With spacious indoor seating and several outdoor terraces, KPO has become a bar staple on Orchard Road. The newly renovated KPO is accessible without the hustle and bustle of Orchard Road and can accommodate up to 500 people.

By day, KPO resembles a greenhouse with streaming skylight and greeneries in and around the building -- a perfect setting for events. At night, the energy changes dramatically with the city's most popular bands playing during Happy Hour and DJs spinning their tunes for after hour parties.

would you go to a bar for food? Yes I would

Even though its a Cafe bar, KPO is designed and functioned like a bar but it is one of the most awesome hangout place in the region. Great music, awesome food, I repeat awesome food, and relatively affordable drinls (Heineken Pine 1 for 1 for DBS) I love the Nasi Lemak Ball (the main reason for most of my visit) but the pork ribs is awesome. It really cant be compared, its not typical bbq sauced Pork Ribs but its sweet and savoury. Definitely will order it when I'm back. The food are served by the chef which is rather unique. The chicken wing is also a must try! Definitely perfect dining and chill out place!

KPO - nice place to chill

I have always been curious about this rooftop bar / lounge that shares the building with Killiney SingPost branch - KPO Cafe Bar.    Interestingly, its name, "KPO", does not stand for the Hokkien version of being nosey ("kaypoh") nor does it stand for "Killiney Post Office" - it is actually the initials for its location, being situated at the intersection between Killiney Road, Penang Road and Orchard Road.   So, this little cafe bar boosts of a totally chilled ambience - unpretentious, relaxing and simply-decorated. I always try to snag a seat on level 2 - the rooftop bar that looks more classic and romantic. The music may be a little loud though, but for the patrons, it was probably what we needed exactly - something to lose ourselves in. The DJs are pretty good. It provides the ideal place for friends to gather for drinks and bites,or colleagues to unwind after a long day's work.   That night, Sylvia* and I decided to chill out there, and we were fortunate enough to get a seat at the rooftop balcony that I preferred. Outside here, music was not as loud, and we could chat over drinks, food and a cosy alfresco ambience.   Besides my Mapu Cabernet Sauvignon and her Somersby Apple Cider, we shared a variety of snacks.   First there was a Wasabi Prawns - tasted like they were stir-fried? Succulent and bouncy in texture, basked in the tantalizing flavors of spicy-wasabi - this is a must have for prawn lovers. They made for the perfect snacks as each prawn was shelled and bite-sized.    The Pork Cubes -coated lightly with flour / biscuits, fried to a perfect crispiness. The overall texture is crispy, firm, but not hard. The taste was a light saltiness that sat well on the tongues, and I loved the bite-sized cubes as well,  so easy to eat.   For more detailed information and photos, please drop by: http://thearcticstar.blogspot.sg/2013/12/chilling-out-at-kpo-cafe-bar.html

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
