The Pallas is a new restaurant, lounge and event space that opened in Fairground in SCBD. It is owned by the All In Group which is also behind Fable (in the same building), Odysseia and Mirror Nightclub in Bali.
It overtook the lease of Potato Head Garage that closed down a few months ago. They've freshened up the place and added their own gothic touch (owls, stained glass, alcoves), but it still look similar as before. It is more upmarket and clean though, it might be sign that the hipster trend is fading.
My understanding is that the name Pallas is an Indonesian play on the word "Palace". It makes sense as it is a rather luxurious venue that specializes on Indonesian food.
The food is not the most interesting aspect of the Pallas. You can get it for much cheaper in any food court actually. Instead, you should visit it when they have special events. They've had a good start so far by bringing 2 "famous" international DJs within their first month of opening (Tay James, Aly & Fila).
They also have regular events: Live band on Monday, Live Harpist on Tuesday, Soul Rn'B on Wednesday, Live Piano on Thursday. You can see the updated schedule on their social media accounts below.
