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.
