It is usually around 10.45 to 11pm. I think there is an 11pm curfew from memory and the bar stays open till 2am on a Saturday.

If you have booked a 7pm show it finishes at 9.30. And there's a lovely tapas/Mediterranean taverna called dimitris just round the corner on deans gate. You might need to book and they're open til 2am
