Where Killiney, Penang and Orchard roads meet sits KPO. By now a familiar café and bar, it took its name from the Killiney Post Office that originally occupied the premises. Close to yet detached from the retail shrines of this part of town, it offers welcome respite, especially since it pours some good Scotch like The Glenlivet (a full selection is available, from the 12 Year Old to the 25 Year Old).
Apart from the raw concrete walls of the alfresco area, you should notice some changes on your next visit. The two-storey hang-out has been newly outfitted to refresh your tippling and mingling experience. Enjoy a glass of The Glenlivet 12 Year Old (it’s $10 during Happy Hour) along with KPO’s popular Hokkien Mee or Nasi Lemak Balls. Then take it up a notch with a glass of The Glenlivet 15 Year Old. Order a platter of its Homemade Potato Chips if you’re still feeling peckish.
KPO’s owners have always been supportive of local musicians, so you can expect live acoustic music every day between 6.30pm and 9pm on its second level. When the tuneful strains from the violin, double bass and saxophone get packed up at 9pm, you can enjoy music spun by local DJs. Whether you’re up for some good music or a great dram or two after a day’s work, KPO doesn’t disappoint.
