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. 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.
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!
It has been 5 years since my last visit to KPO. We visited KPO on a Wednesday night at 6.45pm, and to our surprise, the place was quite packed. We ordered 2 signature cocktails, a smoked duck pizza and steak & eggs.
Firstly, the drinks were very diluted. Secondly, the smoked duck pizza was just mediocre. It did not have much flavour, and I could not see if there was any sauce used as a base. Thirldly, the steak was extremely tough to chew.
Next, when we ordered our drinks, we were told that we would enjoy a 50% discount since it was Ladies Night. When our bill arrived, it did not reflect the discount. It took a long time for the service staff to change the bill and bring it back to us. This was unacceptable, given that the female staff at the cashier was free and lazy to bring the bill to us. The service at KPO is slow, the place is cramped and the music is way too loud for my liking. There are better places in Singapore for drinkning.
KPO is a place for friends to hang out and have drinks and finger food over the weekends or after work. It also offers a range of main courses and dishes if you plan to have a meal there as well. While having a drink with your associates, you might also want to try a cigar or two as they have them on sale as well. Despite its really large area and extensive seating place, this place is really crowded and packed, especially during weekends and it would do good for you to make a reservation or come earlier before the peak periods to get a sit first. They do play some ok music now and then. However, the service level of their staff could be better.
