Playboy After Dark followed much the same style as Hefner's earlier show, Playboy's Penthouse (1959-1960), which had been taped at WBKB-TV in Chicago. The show portrayed a "typical" party at Hefner's place, complete with Playboy Playmates and celebrities, who would then chat with Hefner and perform for the party. Guests included Joe Cocker, Ike & Tina Turner, Sammy Davis Jr. Buddy Rich, Harry Nilsson, The Grateful Dead, Moms Mabley, Deep Purple, Fleetwood Mac, Three Dog Night, Steppenwolf, Grand Funk Railroad, James Brown, Iron Butterfly, Linda Ronstadt, Jack Jones (singer) and others.
Two volumes of the best of Playboy After Dark have been released on DVD.
