THE NAME KILO COMES FROM THE PHONETIC NAME OF THE HALF-BLUE, HALF-YELLOW NAUTICAL FLAG FOR ‘K’, WHICH SIGNALS THE MESSAGE, “WE WISH TO COMMUNICATE WITH YOU.”
The lounge first opened in 2014 in the Ture building in Kampong Bugis, where its sister restaurant Kilo Kallang is still situated. It started out as a spot for pre- or post-dinner drinks; a place where people could escape from everyday life, relax over artisanal cocktails, and seek comfort in ‘the ultimate living room’.
Then, Kilo Lounge threw its first party, and things snowballed from there. The lounge reopened at 21 Tanjong Pagar Road in December 2016, and from 2014 till now, it has since played host to some incredible acts—from hip-hop legends Grandmaster Flash and The Pharcyde to English indietronica duo Hot Chip—alongside world-class DJs like Arado, DJ Yadin, Joe Kay, DJ Tennis, and Culoe De Song, as well as a host of local luminaries like Mr. Has, Aldrin, and Brendon P. Also on the roster is a lineup of live acts, under the Kilo Live series, which aims to provide an alternative nightlife experience in town—artists like Talib Kweli, French Kiwi Juice, and Masego have graced the stage with their musical magic.
Be it food or drinks, the best tunes in town, or just a great night out, there’s always something unexpected to be found at Kilo Lounge.
