Welcome to BedsandBars.com
Here you can find out everything you need to know about our alliance of brands and companies, and who to talk to about your business needs. Our company started back in 1964 with one traditional English Pub. Since then things have changed a bit and today we're proud to operate the St Christopher's Inns hostel chain, Belushi's bars and a number of other well known brands, and services across Europe.
Beds & Bars 50 years in the Hospitality Industry
St Christopher's Inns provide safe, clean, and cheap hostel accommodation in Europe. We take great pride in our reputation and believe, along with many of our customers, that we provide the highest standards within the budget accommodation sector. Visit the St Christopher's Inns website.
Our Belushi's bars have a little American style and lots of personality. By the light of day Belushi's resembles a sports bar with an international pub food menu and big screen TVs. However when the sun sets the party animals come out to play and the bars are taken over by DJs, drink specials and late night parties. Visit the Belushi's website.
The Flying Pig - the world famous Amsterdam hostels which provide travellers with the best balance between laidbackness, homily comforts and the excitement of the city of Amsterdam. Aquired in 2008 the Flying Pig brand is a recent addition to the Beds and Bars stable. Learn more at the Flying Pig website.
Located in the heart of Amsterdam's Red Light District, the Winston is a small underground club and art hotel with a long history. The bar has grown into a popular nightclub and live music venue - open almost every night of the week until late the program includes indie-rock, electro, drum n bass, hip-hop, dub-reggae and unpretentious retro-pop and disco, on most nights preluded by local and international live acts of all sorts and styles. Visit the Winston website.
