Do adults in the average household need bar carts? Does I really need bar carts? This was a topic I thought for four months over as I decorated my very-cute apartment. (Never doubt that I’m an average adult.) On the other side, there are various places to store the bottles of liquor in the cabinet or perhaps an end table. Bar carts may seem a little extravagant, as in, look at me I’m someone who’s definitely been sexually assaulted, and certainly has the ability to mix at least one drink without spilling all the shit on me.
However it makes you appear like a seasoned woman who knows how to create a boulevardier atmosphere for your date. Cocktails as well as Chill is the adult alternative to Netflix and Chill in the end. It will also give you a sense of being more prepared for the next time you’re having guests over at the last moment. Sure, you could give them a fridge Beer(tm) or two, but you could also make a make a gesture to your liquor collection and ask them to “help yourself.” Or perhaps, you can say “Want me to make us all a round of Manhattans?” This is, according to me something that some call”power moves. “power move.”
This is the problem: Like many furniture objects (see rug, too) The vast majority of bars are unappealing, too costly or are so big it’s hard to believe they were inspired by Gatsby’s dining room. The process of finding the perfect one for your needs can be a long process. Once you’ve done it you’ll see that it’s an essential piece for your home and not just for its practicality or value, but because of the way it can make you feel. Also, it’s a great reason to buy some good bottles of liquor to include in your collection.

The Small, Budget Option
My issue with shopping with a gold bar cart was that I had only tiny, extremely specific space to store the cart. This eliminated all of options below. However, I discovered the most perfect narrow cart at every most-loved place to decorate your college dorm and haven’t ever looked back. It occupies a tiny amount of space, has a minimalist design (read that it doesn’t look like you bought it from Urban) and is able to accommodate all the bottles I have so far. In the future, I might have to upgrade however, this is an ideal starting set.
The Modern Nordic-Inspired Option
And if I ever do upgrade, I’ll probably go into credit card debt for this still-kinda-minimalist-but-much-bigger option from ABC home. It’s still pretty and compact, but it’s more sophisticated and modern and contemporary. With more space the top shelf could be used as a serving space.
The Vintage-But-Not-Crappy Option
If you’re a fan of scouring second-hand shops and Etsy for everything and anything you can look at a used Cosco utility cart. They are available in stunning primary colors, typically have 3 shelves (more storage! ) They will last forever.
The Affordable Mid-Century Option
You are a fan of mid-century furniture? Choose three of their chairs. Just kidding! Mid-century furniture is extremely popular and enjoyable to be around in fact, West Elm knows this. Its Mid-Century Bar Cart is a hit on all the marks It’s elegant and constructed of beautiful, smooth walnut and the slightest hint of gold.
The Luxe Option
I’d like to gently apply my cheek to the smooth and rounded edges that make up this bar cart by Design Within Reach. It has a slim profile with a small, sneaky handle, and a large space to organize a party with it. If anyone wants to give me the present on my birthday, that’s perfect. It’s also very masculine however not in a way that is sexy.
