afters means: After-hours illegal drinking at a bar, even after the clock has closed. To prevent any officials from hearing it open and money being added to it, the landlord left the cash drawer unlocked. The few regulars who drink afters are called the “afters” crowd. This is used in Yorkshire and northern England. (in Community Dictionary, added by Aaliyah Huynh)

What else does afters mean?
