What Is a Bar Cart?

A bar cart is a small wheeled table that holds liquor bottles and cocktail-making equipment. The easily accessible equipment makes a bar cart the perfect spot for making cocktails. You can place a bar cart anywhere in your house because of its wheels. The wheels also allow you to move the cart around your home with ease.

Bar carts are the ideal home furniture for displaying your alcohol collection. A bar cart can give your place a sprinkle of class and luxury.

Why Do You Need a Bar Cart?

Although we all want to trick out our basement into a 1920s speakeasy, hidden behind a false library, where the only way to get in is to know the password (wait, maybe thatโ€™s just me), the fact of life is that many of us just donโ€™t have the space.

A bar cart also serves as a practical storage and serving tool, but works twofold as decorative furniture. Once you own a bar cart, you can focus on the accessories and decor that take it to the next level. You want to proudly be able to show off your collection of delicious, niche, or even rare wines and spirits to your guests in a tasteful way.  

Benefits of Owning a Bar cart

  • If you have guests over that have pets, or toddlers, you can easily roll your bar cart to another part of the home temporarily.
  • Bar carts can help you free up storage space. With the ability to stack multiple glasses, bottles, cocktails tools, in a variety of different ways, it frees up cabinet space for more of your spaghetti-stained tupperware.
  • Finally, a bar cart is a sign that you are someone who enjoys the finer things in life, who is still in the prime of their life, and most importantly, knows their way around a cocktail menu. 

What to Look Out for When Buying a Bar Cart

There are various styles available for bar carts, all of which have different features. Here are some things to consider when searching for your ideal bar cart.

Material

Most bar carts youโ€™ll find on the market, once assembled, will come in a rectangular frame (some come in circular designs, as youโ€™ll see later on), are usually made of steel, and have a wooden top where you can place your glassware when serving drinks. Sometimes, the entire bar cart, including the frame can be made entirely out of wood. 

Wood has its pros and cons, especially if youโ€™re going for a specific aesthetic for your home. But remember, liquid could have damaging effects on wood. It could leave permanent rings from your glasses, creak with the amount of weight placed on it, wobble if manufactured wrong and warp the wood due to absorption. 

Of course, there are ways to limit these issues, like purchasing a bar mat to prevent spilling onto the wood, but we just wanted to throw that out there.

Storage

Some bar carts are larger than others and yet somehow offer less storage space than smaller, more compact bar carts. On the flip side, you donโ€™t want a bar cart that appears to have multiple shelves and racks, only to find out, none of your bottles actually fit. Pay attention to the use of space. 

Also, think about your drink preferences. Do you typically collect big square bottles of Jack Daniels or cylindrical bottles of wine? Either way, I would recommend a bar cart that has both racks to store horizontally across (with the cap/cork facing toward or away from you) and space for bottles to sit upright (with the cap/cork facing toward the ceiling). How much importance you place on rack space is up to you.

I prefer bar carts with storage room for my glasses, both stemmed and unstemmedโ€”just something else to think about. 

Mobility 

A bar cart must have wheels, and good ones too. There is no point in buying a bar cart if itโ€™s going to be stationary or a pain in the neck to move around. 

Think of the kind of floors you have and what kind of wheels your bar cart would need. You should be fine with some standard wheels if you have wooden or tiled flooring, but you might want to consider bigger wheel options for carpet. 

Shape

When considering shape, remember the first reason for getting a bar cart in the first place. If itโ€™s to save on living space, go for a tall bar cart. If itโ€™s for shock and aww, then maybe you want a wide bar cart where you can fit multiple accessories.
