Mensagem: 
Your original sentence:
Only after you have spent an evening there will you begin to understand the special charm of this place. - Good, with a literary or rhetorical tone.

Your second sentence:
Only after have you spent an evening there you will begin to understand the special charm of this place. - Ungrammatical. Not an option.

Another option:
You will begin to understand the special charm of this place only after you have spent an evening there. - This would be the normal phrasing.
