Raise the Bar

by Melanie, February 26, 2014

Enjoy a cocktail from time to time?  So do we!  Bar carts are everywhere these days, and it’s no wonder — they are mobile after all.  There are so many great features in this one little piece of furniture:  They are small in scale; they are perfect for display; they come in styles to suit every home; and, they don’t even have to be used for bars — try one as a console table!  Some people even call them “tea carts.”

Nothing against tea, but we prefer the bar…
Here are some stylish ways to serve up a fabulous bar (cart):
The Madison Mixer from Society Social,
As seen (with styling tips!) on HGTV.
Roland G Gold Leaf Bar Cart with Mirrored Shelf
Worlds Away
(If you like the plain lines of this one but prefer less glamour, check out Crate & Barrel.)
Lisbon Bar Cart
Arteriors
Lacy Bar Cart
Gabby Home
Butterfield Serving Cart
Vanguard
Butler Side Table with Wheels

These brass side rails remind us of an old-school bar.

An oval cart has a great, vintage vibe.

And speaking of vintage, this contemporary style was actually designed in the 1930s.
Artek 901 Tea Trolley
Dwell
Drinks at the beach house anyone?
Palm Tu
Worlds Away
More tropical vibes — we’re thinking Mai Thais.
South Seas Bar Cart

This baby is big enough for your outdoor bar AND your grilling essentials.

 And how’s this for a crafty cart?  A converted changing table!

So go ahead and belly up to a fabulous bar cart in your home.  And don’t forget to call us for happy hour.  Cheers!
P.S.
If you are wishing — like we are — that you had the foresight to order a great bar cart for your Oscar’s Party, well, you are too late…  But you can still get one in time for the spring party season — just give us a call!
In the meantime, you can rent a vintage bar cart like this one from a local Northern Virginia shop.
