Does someone know of good bars for people 30+ where one can have a drink, talk with friends without having to shout at each other as the music would be too loud and the place should be open a bit longer then midnight.

whilst not exactly swish you may like the Dover Castle in Great Dover St, round the corner from Borough tube

comfy sofas, not over loud music, reasonable prices, no attitudes and last time I was there (a year ago...) they had a deal with the local pizza takeout where it got brought to your table.

it's below a hostel of the same name but doesn't seem to get rowdy on the few occasions I've been.

no connection... used to be my local!

The Rose on Snowsfields gets my vote for a late night drink.

The Rose used to be an excellent location for a late night drink, however I feel it's suffered a little in the last few years. Still a great jukebox, but it feels more like a student union dive these days with busted sofas to match; plus I'm all for dimly lit pubs but jezz, put a couple of bulbs where the pool table used to be!

The Hide on Bermondsey street is open late if you're looking for something a bit more fancy. Usually quieter after the after work crowd have moved on.

The Hide is usually good until 2:00am and has really nice seating at the back which is a bit quieter

What about hotel bars? Any good experiences to share - how long is the bar in Bermondsey Square hotel open? How is the bar in the Hilton at More London? or any other hotel in the area?

Imbibe on Blackfriars Road is pretty nice. Open til about 1 I think. We've hired it a couple of times at work and I dont recall it being expensive.

Staff can be variable.
