Sort of like a School of Life but with more of a sense of humour, the new Idler Academy ticks a few of our favourite boxes (outside of drinking, naturally):
2. Revelling in obscure academia;
3. Toying with the retrospective and quirky.
Plus it’s tagline is “Bookseller. Coffeehouse. School.” If they went and threw “Cocktail Bar” into that neat little equation then it might just constitute The Boilermaker heaven.
