The bar cart is an elegant touch to any dining room or hub of home entertainment. Choosing the right bar cart, however, depends on if you’re focused on function or style. Here’s how to make that distinction and choose a bar cart that’s perfect  for your space.

  • Storage space: Storage space is key if you have a variety of bottles and glassware to place on your bar cart. If you have a lot to store, look for carts with hooks and shelves that will keep your cart organized. For those that prefer a more minimalist design, opt for a simple and stable bar cart that can hold just the essentials.
  • Countertop: If you’re planning on preparing drinks on your bar cart, you’ll need ample “countertop” space for drinks, glasses and utensils to mix, shake and stir. If you’re simply looking to showcase your bar items and have the cart as a focal point of the room, then look for a smaller one.
  • Moveable features: For those who want to host with ease, search for a bar cart with features to keep your bottle and glassware secure. A railing on the lowest shelf can prevent items from rolling off, especially if you’ll be moving while serving drinks. Locking wheels are also a key function so nothing spills or breaks while mixing cocktails!
