James & Kimberly Van Der Beek Hit West Hollywood's Newest Nightclub

Taking a break from daddy and mommy duty, James and Kimberly Van Der Beek headed out to West Hollywood on Tuesday night to check out a special V.I.P. night at L.A.'s newest nightclub, Bootsy Bellows.

The lovey-dovey duo popped into the venue with a few male pals, and the group was immediately escorted to a private area in the back that was accessible to people with wristbands only.

"They had a table to themselves complete with alcoholic beverages and mixers," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "The group seemed really close-knit and comfortable with each other. At the beginning of the night, James and Kimberly were sitting next to each other, but as it went on, James scooted over to talk to his guy friends and Kimberly seemed to blend in perfectly with the rest of the group."

Of the happily married pair, the source says they "didn't really show any PDA," but they just "seemed really cozy and happy to be together."

At one point, a woman walked around carrying a bag of candy and light-up plastic rings, and Kimberly went for a sweet treat.

"She took a long gummy worm and started eating it," says the observer. "She made it look very yummy."

The new spot, co-owned by David Arquette – who was also on hand that night, dressed dapper in a suit – opens to the public on June 29.

The premise (small-town girl starts a new life in New York City, hijinks ensue) has been done before – but it's never been this twisted.

Don't Trust the B–––– in Apt. 23, premiering Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. on ABC, features June (Dreama Walker), who moves to the Big Apple only to lose her job, her apartment and her fiancé. The naïve new girl finds a room with Chloe (yes, she's the titular B), played by Krysten Ritter, and a tenuous friendship with her best pal, James Van Der Beek, playing a smarmy, crass version of himself – to hilarious results.

Here are three reasons to watch:
