Bar Cart Style
Serve drinks at home in style and bring the party to your guests from one of 12 beautifully themed and stylishly stocked bar carts.
Bar carts are making a big comeback, with an upsurge in those of us taking pride in entertaining at home. Originally the epitome of domestic style and taste in the 50s and 60s, retro TV series like Mad Men have left people aching for the glamor of a bygone era, and something unusual for the home. And mobile furniture on the whole is proving popular too: if you’re not a fan of the retro style, you might also be taken by the adaptability of some styles of cart as a vital bit of extra storage in a small living space.
Gaze upon luxurious marble and smoked glass carts that hark back to the Art Deco era and the golden age of cocktails; edgy tubular metal trolleys that scream 80s utility style; chic Scandinavian stained wood for poolside parties; mid-century walnut-veneer and brass straight out of Don Draper's office, and even folding 1960s aluminium tea lady trolleys can make quite the statement. With shelves to store bottles and glassware and a top the height for mixing drinks, each style of cart lends itself to a carefully curated display of stock. Choose your bottles of spirits, glassware, shakers, stirrers, and other cocktail kit from the wide range now on offer and create not just a practical serving station but a super-stylish addition to any interior.

Behind The Bar: 50 Cocktail Recipes from the World's Most Iconic Hotels
Behind the Bar shines a light on 50 signature cocktails from the most iconic hotel bars across the world, appealing to tried-and-true cocktail lovers and design aficionados alike. Recipes from some of these storied properties will inspire enthusiasts to re-create timeless cocktails at home. Plus, anecdotes supplied by barkeeps and hotel and design personalities will enliven the recipes and reveal why so many hotel bars have endured through the years or have made an impact on the modern world.
The clandestine speakeasy has been glorified countless times for its mix of sex appeal and transporting décor but the hotel bar should also be recognised for its sophistication, grandeur, or showmanship. Behind the Bardoes exactly that but also transcends the cocktail crowd niche. It is just as much a book for the traveller with a strong appreciation for design as well as the fantasy-filled armchair traveller charmed by illustrations and nuggets of history.

An Entertaining Story, India Hicks
Style icon India Hicks – daughter of the late David Hicks and goddaughter to Prince Charles – is known for her irreverent take on style, which is a mix of her traditional British past and relaxed island present. In her previous books for Rizzoli, she invited readers into her homes on Harbour Island and in England, sharing décor inspiration and family anecdotes.
Now in her latest book, she presents her own slightly madcap spin on entertaining, sharing parties and tabletops organised around meals, beginning with "Let's Start with a Drink" to ending with "The Great British Breakfast." In between there are birthday celebrations featuring her children through the years, a White Christmas in the Bahamas, a picnic lunch on the Thames, among many others. Like India, these parties are full of personality, from the Panic Dinner (or what to do when you suddenly have a crowd descending); to The Great English Breakfast (as demonstrated by her mother, Lady Pamela Hicks) to The Naked Cake (cake decorating for the time-challenged).
- Each celebration includes cleverly beautiful yet easily implemented advice and inspiration for place settings, homemade flower arrangements, table design and more.
- Each chapter also includes two delicious recipes from India's chef, fondly known as Top Banana, from traditional English dishes such as Victoria Sponge and Chicken Pies to tropical treats such as The Marquess' Banana Daquiri.
