The College Bar is located next to A staircase and is operated by the College under the Licensing Act 2003. The Bar Manager, Alex Brown, and his staff have an obligation to refuse to serve those whom they consider to be the worse for drink, to avoid serving multiple orders near closing time, and to enforce a 15-minute drinking-up time. No alcohol bought outside College may be consumed in the College Bar or in the JCR. Wine for Formal Hall and other dinners can be purchased in the Bar. Corkage is charged in Hall on alcohol bought outside the College. Selwyn students who bring guests to the Bar are responsible for their guests’ behaviour.

The bar’s usual opening hours are:

Monday – Friday: 6.00pm – 11.00pm
Saturday: 6.00pm – 12.00 midnight
Sunday: 7.00pm – 11.00pm

These times may vary, particularly during the Quiet Periods and during the vacations. Any changes to opening hours will be posted on the door.

In addition, the College permits occasional bar extensions, or the use of a satellite bar in the Diamond for a late-night bar, bops, or special evenings. Permission must be obtained from the Operations Manager and the Dean for any extension.
