The Art of the Bar Cart

Is there anything classier than a bar cart?

Bar carts remind us of a bygone era, when men and women made fixing a cocktail an art. And while the excessive bar cart use in the offices of Mad Men may be concerning, we can learn a thing or two about bar cart styling in our homes. 

Read on to learn everything you need to create the perfect bar cart-Don Draper not included. 
 



The Main Event

Obviously you need to start with the cart! Bar carts come in all styles and prices, so finding the perfect one for your home is a cinch. From shiny gold to rustic wood to mid century rattan, we've picked out a range of bar carts for your perusal. 





Shake It

The cocktail shaker may be the most used item on your bar cart, and it's the perfect opportunity to show off your style. Sleek, chic, or even a little silly, cocktail shakers give your cart some personality and should definitely be displayed on the top shelf!




Drink Up

You can't drink without the glasses, and be sure to get a variety of styles for all of the different drinks you'll make! Tumblers, martini glasses, champagne flutes, and a few mule mugs should cover almost all of your drink options.




 

The Cherry on Top

Want to take it to the next level? The cutest bar carts have interesting ice buckets, drink stoppers, and stirrers. And if you haven't upgraded your bottle opener to something chic, now is the time. Ice molds enhance the presentation of the drink and melt slower than regular ice to avoid watering down your concoctions. And don't forget some cute coasters!



Now just stir, and enjoy!
