belly up to the bar cart.

fancy cocktails have certainly made a comeback of late — old fashioned’s and manhattans are really making the rounds these days and bar carts have begun appearing all over my pinterest feed for a while now. i’ve even made a pinboard dedicated to the mighty bar cart. it’s such a fun thing to put together for home entertaining, and i’ve been on the hunt for a nice, simple, sleek bar cart for my dining area. chairish has an amazing variety of styles and sizes, all previously owned and gently loved — can you imagine the stories a vintage bar cart could share!? from brass and copper to lucite and mid-century modern teak bar carts, chairish is a great resource to track down a bar cart of your own — here’s some of my personal favorites. add ice, cocktails, and stir!

    Every single one is perfect! I just worked on setting up a bar cart, but it turned into a closet because I had too much stuff. This re-inspires me to figure out the cart!

    I don ‘t even drink alcohol, but I always adore the look of these bar carts, I bought one just so that I can put a night lamp on it, so that I don’t miss out on it. :)
    These are exceptionally nice bar carts. Such inspiration!

    So many pretty bar carts! I have one that’s fully stocked and looks chic in my living room but I’m realizing I never ever drink hard alcohol, only wine! You’ve inspired me to make a cocktail ;)

    I would love a bar cart, but rather than use it for alcohol, I would use if for a range of cakes and other bakes for afternoon tea!!

    Sorry to show English I am!
