I was in Amsterdam and actually the best night was the one I spent at the St Christopher’s Inn bar, from the happy hour until late night. I got there directly from the Bruges one, casually walked into the bar and thought “How cool! Let’s have a party here” and then discovered it was a St Christopher’s too. Apparently it was meant to happen!
