Tao Park City Brings the Heat to the Snow

The star-studded soirée marked the Tao Group Hospitality’s first Park City event in two years

This past weekend marked entertainment powerhouse Tao Group Hospitality’s official return to Park City, UT with a weekend-long pop-up full of celebrities and VIPs. Taking part alongside the famed Sundance Film festival, Tao Park City featured two nights of nonstop celebration, surprise performances and many, many special guests.


Festivities kicked off on Friday, Jan 20, with an exclusive Chase Sound Check with music by DJ Pee Wee – or Anderson Paak as he’s called on his days off — followed by Grammy award winning DJ Diplo. Attendees included stars such as Jason Momoa, Julianne Hough and AnnaSophia Robb, plus many more. Luxury shuttle service provided by Acura also brought VIP guests Alexander Skarsgard and Jack McBrayer to take part in the festivities. 

The party raged on to Saturday night where guest DJ Mel DeBarge entertained guests and was later joined by Tiffany Haddish. Haddish even performed her new song “Look Like” featuring Snoop Dogg and Lil Wayne. Partygoers included stars like Bella Thorne, Nicholas Braun, Tessa Thompson and Adam Lambert. 


The event was held at Utah Film Studio and featured a series of festive, winter experiences, including Tao ski lifts, a Casamigos ice luge, and even Whispering Angel heated outdoor igloos.

 As for the sips, guests enjoyed Heineken and White Claw beverages, as well as bottle service from Belvedere. Energy drinks from Red Bull kept people buzzing all night, while Evian hydrated partygoers. 

Tao Group Hospitality CMO Pavan Pardasani spoke to the event’s success, recognizing the importance of the group’s return to Park City. “We were so excited to come back to Tao Park City after 2 years. Our weekend-long pop-up meant VIPs and guests who were in town had a place to mingle, unwind and enjoy surprise performances,” said Pardasani. “This year’s celebration did not disappoint and we look forward to coming back next year.”
