who recognized that entertainment is amongst the most consistently and aggressively demanded consumer products in the Jamaican economy. This makes entertainment a good foundation for a company which was set up to achieve the long term corporate goals of the principals.
The KLE Group is redefining the standard of premium entertainment in Jamaica by creating revolutionary brands that cater to new dimensions of a contemporary lifestyle. Through unique innovation, unparalleled service and an astute business management approach, The KLE Group delivers top quality.
In 2008, seven young entrepreneurs - Kevin Bourke, David & Stephen Shirley, Gary & Tina Matalon, Craig Powell and Zuar Ard Jarrett - merged minds and defined how entertainment should be.

Out of our common vision, the KLE Group (aka Kingston Live Entertainment Group) was born. The dynamic of the group and the collective expertise has been our strength. Focused on nightlife entertainment, we launched our first venture in December 2008, the uber-chic Fiction Lounge in Kingston.

Dedicated to delivering a full sensory VIP experience combined with outstanding décor and design, Fiction Lounge surpassed expectations.


On the heels of Fiction’s success, we went in pursuit of our 2nd venture developing a brand that perfectly blended music, food, culture, sports and entertainment in one destination. This idea was brought to life in partnership with one of the world’s most marketable athletes and ‘Usain Bolt’s Tracks & Records’ opened in April 2011.

Our Vision

To be the premier entertainment and lifestyle group in Jamaica and beyond. The KLE Group is now pursuing exciting new projects in gaming, tourism and real estate development.

Our Mission

Building dynamic lifestyle brands that will evolve the landscape of entertainment, satisfy our customers, inspire our team, enhance our community and deliver exceptional shareholder value.
KLE Supports Jamaica

In support of our nation’s development, our partnerships and donations also span into the business fraternity and include hosting young professional organizations and associations to spark networking and giving of our establishments to film business TV programmes and publish magazine products in an effort toward stimulating our economy and encouraging the entrepreneurial spirit.
