After Dark is a nightclub and gig venue, owned by several characters on FOX drama soap Beverly Hills, 90210.


Adjacent to the "Peach Pit", a long standing restaurant owned by Nat; the "After Dark" was opened to appeal to an older 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 originated with Steve Sanders, who wanted to make some extra money. His venture was financed by Dylan McKay, who owned half of Peach Pit with Nat Bussichio. The first party was held inside the actual Peach Pit building, but a fire marshal had to shut them down due to lack of space. With Dylan's money, they purchased the building next door and expanded it into a night club. However, after Steve got into legal trouble when a fire broke out at one of his parties, he was legally forbidden form organizing any more parties for two years.[1]

As a result, David Silver and Clare Arnold temporarily managed the place when Dylan presumably sold the club to Rush Sanders and the building to Jill Abernathy. However, Valerie Malone later bought it from Rush after getting paid for a job in Mexico by J. Jay Jones.[2]

After David inherited some money from his grandfather, Henry Silver, he purchased half of Valerie's share of the club and became her partner. They temporarily hired Tom Miller as the manager. After Tom quit, Derrick Driscoll convinced Valerie to sell her half back to David, but Driscoll just wanted to steal her money. However, David ended up owning the club. David got into a financial rut and could not pay Abernathy the monthly rent. When David was evicted, he forged checks from Donna Martin to pay the rent. Later, he took money from a loan shark, Everett Sands, but was unable to pay back the loan.

Noah Hunter stepped in and bought the building before David was seriously hurt. At some point, Noah took out a mortgage on the building and Jeannine Stein offered to buy Nat's portion when Noah couldn't make the mortgage payments. Noah broke the news to a disappointed Nat while accepting Jeannine's offer. However, Dylan wasn't ready to see Nat's business closed. He went to the bank and bought the mortgage, informing Noah that he his offer was rescinded.


  • The show shot in warehouses on Calvert Street in Van Nuys and when the After Dark was created, it was set in a warehouse that was used to shoot porn films next door to the first couple of seasons[3]
