There was no one having a better time at the Netflix party than the young stars of “Stranger Things.”

Millie Bobby Brown hit the dance floor for a good part of the night along with her costars Noah Schnapp and Finn Wolfhard.

Netflix boss Ted Sarandos arrived to the bash long after the party was well under way. James Corden pulled up at about the same time, and the two men chatted as RuPaul and Michelle Visage were waiting for their car to leave.

Inside the party, there was a sushi station as well as wait staff weaving their way through the crowd offering mini sliders and pizza from Italian hotspot Jon & Vinny’s.

Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons talked with friends at one of the many reserved seating arrangements just off the dance floor.

Corden was seen dancing as were “A Star Is Born” actor Anthony Ramos and Dascha Polanco of “Orange Is the New Black.” Polanco’s former “OITNB” co-star Samira Wiley, who won an Emmy last weekend at the Creative Arts Emmys for her work on “The Handmaid’s Tale,” arrived a little after 11 p.m., just as ITV America president Adam Sher said hello to Connie Britton, who was leaving with plans to head over to the nearby Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel for the “Saturday Night Live” party.

“13 Reasons Why” actor Tommy Dorfman was leaving when “Queer Eye” star Tan France tapped him on the shoulder and asked, “Are you leaving already?” Taraji P. Henson was heard screaming with excitement as she hugged a friend at the entrance.

While many women arrived to the party in heels, they left wearing flip flops handed out at booth inside the party.

The Netflix guest list also included “Stranger Things” star David Harbour, Benedict Cumberbatch, Wilson Cruz, Malin Akerman, Kenya Barris, Alyssa Milano, Katt Williams, Jeff Daniels, Patton Oswalt, Jason Bateman, Billy Eichner, “Queer Eye’s” Bobby Berk, Natasha Lyonne, Fred Armisen, Hal Linden and Marc Maron. —Marc Malkin

“The Handmaid’s Tale” may not have been able to pull out repeat Emmy wins, but that didn’t stop its platform from celebrating after the 70th annual ceremony. Hulu’s two-story fete was meant to honor its key nominees, but its guest list spanned a number of new and returning original series.
