Chris Hemsworth leads a celebrity storm at Tao Sundance

January 22, 2011 |  3:56 pm

Chris Hemsworth The Ministry appreciates Sundance Film Festival founder Robert Redford, with his quiet grace and undying love for filmmaking -- but honestly, who doesn't occasionally need a little Patron on the rocks and some quality star gazing?

That's why we love the annual Tao nightclub pop-up that comes to the festival in Park City, Utah, this year in residence at the Samsung Galaxy Tab Lift.

On Friday's opening night, an army of hot young things turned up to party -- including "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth with his new bride, Elsa Pataky, and actor-brother, Liam Hemsworth.

Hotelier Andre Balazs circulated with the likes of James Franco, bachelor Dominick Cooper, Claire Danes' man Hugh Dancy and Rachel Leigh Cook.

Representing the winter sports was Olympian Shawn White, taking in Robin Antin and the girls of the Pussycat Dolls getting down in the packed space.

Also spotted: actor Kyle Howard sans girlfriend Lauren Conrad, Tinsley Mortimer and Brandon Davis (what, pray tell, are those two doing in town?), and former Brody Jenner flame Jayde Nicole.
