A city, a bed, a bar and a book. Can you help me get away more in 2012?

For the first time in 20 years I am no longer tied to a full-time job. I'd like to spend more time in Europe this year in regular short but sweet bursts of 2-3 days. I've always enjoyed just propping up a bar and soaking up the atmosphere everytime I've travelled and would like to do this rather than hit the tourist trail. Can you recommend great cities easily accessible from the UK (i.e. one flight or train journey), a place to stay, a bar to drink in and a book (ideally connected to that place) to read. Bonus points if the bar serves great food and is near the one must see or do that city has to offer.
