In America, there is a difference between "meeting" and "meeting up." The first is something employees might do to discuss a work problem. The second is something they might do for drinks and socializing. Is there a difference in French? And we'd probably just say "after work," while "after hours" means something else entirely, like after the bars close.
Not really. In this case, it doesn't sound right to use "after hours" to mean "after several hours." After several hours, after a few hours, a few hours later, in a few hours. There are a lot of ways to express this, but "after hours" is not one of them.
Note: all of those would back translate into something like dans des heures or dans quelques heurs, since they have nothing to do with work hours.
