I'm gonna be that guy and go ahead and suggest that many of the coincidences we experience in life really aren't as random as we think they should be.There's no reason, it's narrative convenience... You could maybe argue Jorah was there because of the queen look-a-like but it's pretty clear Tyrion just picked that place out of the blue, probably because it was the closest one when he got out of the room on wheels.
In this situation, that whole continent is basically a bigass desert with some major cities connecting the one major trade route, right? Here you have two individuals that would almost certainly be traveling that same road, in opposing directions and for opposing reasons. One is trying to get to the place from where the other is fleeing. One of these individuals has a known penchant for whore houses. What do you expect him to do as soon as he breaks free of his little prison? Go find some trim at the earliest possible convenience. The other, drunken and despondent, seems to be in that very place to catch some familiarity--the lookalike dragon lady whore? Maybe, maybe not, but I wonder if he was ever hanging out there for any manner of time and if we was, it would only increase the chances that SFZ would have run into Tyrion. If he was just passing through, there is a very likely chance they still would have crossed paths at any point of the journey. point being...strange, chance meetings like this really aren't all that unusual when you think about it.
