After Dark is a nightclub and gig venue next door to the Peach Pit, owned by several characters on Beverly Hills, 90210.


Adjacent to the "Peach Pit", a long standing restaurant owned by Nat, the "After Dark" was opened to appeal to a younger crowd. Various different musical acts performed, parties and other events were held, such as fashion shows for Donna Martin and surprise birthday parties. Steve Sanders even had the unfortunate realization that a friend OD'ed in the bathroom stall.


The idea for the Peach Pit After Dark originates with Steve Sanders, who wants to make some extra money. His venture is financed by Dylan McKay, who owns half of the Peach Pit with Nat Bussichio. The first party is held inside the actual Peach Pit building, but a fire marshal shuts them down due to overcrowding. With Dylan's money, they lease the old rug store next door and expand it into a night club. Steve gets into legal trouble after hosting a rave where faulty wiring causes a fire and he is subsequently legally forbidden from organizing parties for two years.[1] As a result, David Silver and Clare Arnold temporarily manage the After Dark following Dylan signing the lease over to Rush Sanders. 3 months later, Valerie Malone buys the club from Rush.[2]

In 1996, David inherits money following his grandfather Henry Silver's death, and purchases half of Valerie's share of the club, becoming her partner.[3] They temporarily hire Tom Miller as the manager. After Tom quits, Derrick Driscoll convinces Valerie to sell her half to David, but Driscoll just wants to steal her money. Driscoll suceeds in robbing Val and as a result, David ends up the sole owner.

In autumn 1997, David gets into a financial rut and cannot pay the building's new owner Jill Abernathy the monthly rent. When David is evicted, he forges checks from Donna Martin to pay the rent. Later, he takes money from a loan shark, Everett Sands, but is unable to pay back the loan. Noah Hunter steps in and buys the building from Abernathy before David is seriously hurt.

At some point, Noah takes out a mortgage on the Peach Pit and Jeannine Stein offers to buy Nat's share when Noah can't make the mortgage payments. Noah breaks the news to a disappointed Nat while accepting Jeannine's offer. However, Dylan isn't ready to see Nat's business closed and buys the mortgage.
