The school I went to in Italy was attached to a hotel. That may sound strange, but with professors coming to teach from all over the world, perhaps they thought it simply made good business sense. Of course, it was the students who took most advantage of the lobby bar. We’d pop in for a quick espresso before class or convene for a spritz post-exam.
While it was far from the most luxe hotel bar on the planet — a bit dusty and outdated — it makes me happy just thinking about it. Then again, pretty much any hotel bar makes me swoon.
