Bars close at 1 p.m. but they may stay open a bit later if you tip them. Also, you could also bring the party to one of your rooms if you wanted to. We went to bed after the bar closed at 1 a.m. but I think you could order drinks to the room afterwards. We thought that would be an issue too but by 1 a.m. we were pretty much ready to go to bed...but some groups hung out in their rooms to keep the part going.
There is a dress code but they are not very strict at all. You weren't suppose to wear sandals or shorts but people in our group had no problems there.
Let me know if you have any other questions!

We actually don't have a photographer. We are really trying to save money and, although I know everyone says the photographer is not the place to scimp, we just couldn't justify the expense of hiring an outside vendor or flying someone in, so we opted to have a family member with a really nice camera and some amateur photography training take some formal shots. Then we'll just ask everyone to post their photos to Flikr or something afterwards.
We're having 40 guests-- glad to hear it's possible to do larger groups for meals!
One more question: is there a dress code for restaurants and how strictly is it enforced?
Thanks, again, for the information!
