Paris hotel Pavillon de la Reine and its two sister hotels — Le Pavillon des Lettres and Hôtel du Petit Moulin — have launched a new kind of happy hour: the "Dishonesty Hour." Every Wednesday, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., guests can make their own cocktails — for free.

Each of the three hotels has an "Honesty Bar" in their lobbies, where guests can help themselves to what the bar has to offer, and write down what drink they pick to receive the bill later. The new "Dishonesty Hour" uses the same concept, but instead of being honest, guests can make as many drinks as they want without telling anyone, as it’s all for free.

Guest staying at any of the three hotels can shake, stir, and pour their cocktail of choice using any liquor offered at the bar, including Johnnie Walker Black Label, Absolut Vodka, Bacardi Rum, and Hennessy Fine Cognac , just to name a few. For mixers, guests can use classic soft drinks and fruit juices. For those not looking for a hard-liquor or cocktail, the hotel bars also offers a selection of wine and beer.

The "Dishonesty Hour" special is available starting now, and running until January — or longer — depending on how well it is received by the hotel guests. Our guess? It's going to get a pretty warm reception, as free drinks tend to have that "happy effect" on people…
