Back in 2020, Marriott started the concept of monthly member day in China, and it didn’t take long for Hyatt and IHG to follow suit. Shangri-La has finally joined the party too, and also expanded the idea globally.
The monthly event is called Six Times The Fun, and you can read more on their offer page. It’s mostly about exclusive hotel packages that offer breakfast and dining credit etc, which also earns you 6x Golden Circle points. More interestingly, all Shangri-La Circle members can have a freebie each month.
You can read about This Round is on Us here. Basically you can enjoy one complimentary cocktail at participating Shangri-La restaurants and bars on the 6th of every month.
There are about 20 restaurants available, which isn’t many. However, the Ting Lounge at Shangri-La London is included.
I don’t think you need an accompanying meal to redeem the free cocktail, but for many venues, including the Ting Lounge, mandatory reservation is required to attend.
This is not a life-changing benefit, but if you’ve got Circle points or vouchers you may turn up in one of the restaurants anyway. I just used my voucher towards an afternoon tea in the Ting restaurant recently, and a free cocktail wouldn’t hurt.
