    be late for the last train

    Suppose we have spent too much time at a bar, and might not be able to catch the last train, then what would you say?
    "Let's hurry up. We might be late for the last train"?

    That's fine. You could use others:
    Let's hurry up, or we'll miss the train.

    Can I say: "Let's hurry up, or we'll miss the last train."

    If you're talking about the very last train on the timetable, that's fine to say so.
