How to Stock a Home Bar Cart Guide

Vivre Le Rêve14 comments

The mad men-esque home bar cart is enjoying a bit of a revival at the moment. Personally, I think it’s high time somebody gave this old relic a Pinterest makeover. However, I think there’s a special way of doing it because it’s very easy for it to either appear outdated or a little try hard.

The perfect cocktail is as much about quality ingredients as it is about detail and presentation. Ideally, all drinks should be served in their own appropriate glassware.

Here’s a list of glassware that I recommend for a well stocked bar cart:

• Martini glasses
• Tumblers
• White wine glasses
• Champagne flutes
• A flask
• Shot glass set
• Moscow mule mug
• Decanter
• Pitcher

You’ll be prepared for most requests with that list, It’s a great starting point. And of course they’d be no beautiful cocktails without beautiful barware. I’ve listed what I deem to be essentials below:

• Serving tray
• Ice bucket
• Bar tools
• Bottle stopper
• Ice scooper
• Bar spoon
• Corkscrew
• Stir sticks
• Bottle opener

This elegant bar cart conjures a scene a la Gatsby in any room of your home. The metallic gold frame, high-shine mirrored shelf, and glossy glass tabletop complement the sleek, linear architecture perfectly for a luxurious style. The spacious shelves provide plenty of space for your martinis, stemware, and garnishes while the X-frame sides give a nod to the lavish lifestyles of the ‘20s.

It’s on the large size for a bar cart, but that’s exactly what I needed for the space I had available. Plus I like to incorporate the bar cart into any theme I’m using too. So, for example, at Christmas time it will be decorated and turned into a hot chocolate station. The extra size of this one allows you a lot more scope for how you dress it up and use it.

Here are the size details: 82cm H x 98cm W x 59cm D

This is ideal for bringing a piece of the fabulous life to your home. You can envision a soiree full of flappers and gents in white spats with this charming piece. I’m literally obsessed with this Bar Cart! It is so chic, well-built, and the perfect size.
