What are Bar Carts? And Why Every Wine Collector Needs One in Their Life | Wine Stash

One of the many joys of being a wine collector is presenting the wine to your friends. Outside of a classic collection on your wine racks, there’s one thing that makes any wine lover geek out: a Bar Cart.

Bar carts are a great way to store drinks, cups, and other products that can benefit from mobile storage. However, bar carts can also serve as great stationary storage solutions. Whether you are looking for a kitchen island, or a way to easily serve your guests drinks on the go, you will find a bar cart for your needs from any respectable retailer.

You have seen them at restaurants and maybe even your friend’s house (with a tinge of envy). Here’s all you need to know about Wine Bar Carts and why any wine storage fan should own one.

Definition of Bar Carts

Bar Carts can be used in different locations, including living rooms, weddings, functions, restaurants and parties. What sets them apart from smaller wine cabinets is that they are mobile.

Bar carts present a great opportunity for entertainment and showcasing your wine or spirits collection. Whether you opt for a wood bar cart, an industrial bar cart, or any other type, it’s great to be able to show off your multifunctional bar cart to your friends and guests.

They Offer Short-Term Wine Storage that is Closer Than Your Wine Racks

If you have wine that you are planning on drinking in the near future, it can be handy to have them on-hand and close by. Rather than keep them on your wine racks, Bar Carts allow you to keep them in whatever living space you wish while still maintaining a classy look to your collection.

They Simply Look Amazing and Can Double as Interior Furniture

There’s no hiding it: for many people, the biggest perk of owning a bar cart is that they look amazing. A well-made bar cart has the same craftsmanship and artistry as a classic wine rack.

At places like Wine Stash, you’ll find amazingly craftedbar carts that come in all shapes, colours, and sizes. From cabinets to pure alcohol trolleys, you won’t go wrong with a well-placed bar cart.

What’s more, is that they also act as impressive interior furniture. There are countless styles to choose from, including Industrial French Bar Carts, Contemporary Timber Bar Carts and Marble Bar Carts. Whatever your living space is, you can be sure that there is a bar car to compliment its style.

This transcends wine cellars too. A well-placed bar cart can add a great sense of ambience to an environment, whether it’s stacked with alcohol or anything else. However, for a wine connoisseur, there is no better way to show off your collection on the go than a bar cart.

They are Show Stoppers at Dinner Parties

Let’s be honest, Bar Carts bring the wow factor to dinner parties regardless of if you’re a wine connoisseur or not. They are a fun and eye-catching surprise at a party and a great conversation starter.

They allow you to proudly show off (some of) your wine collection without having to bring guests into your wine room or wine cellar. PS: there is nothing quite like offering champagne to your guests straight from a Bar Cart.

On that note, it’s important to drive home how important a bar cart is for homes with smaller wine cellars or none at all. There’s no need to bring a bunch of people into your wine cellar if it’s crowded — simply load up a bar cart, and you’re on your way! 

Styling a bar cart

It’s no secret thatbar carts aren’t an everyday sight. When you see one, you think of luxury, convenience, and efficiency. That is why there are various ways to maximise the use of your bar cart:  

  • Beverages
  • Though traditionally you would find spirits, mixers, wine, and more on a bar cart, the truth is that you can place whatever beverage you want on it. For a wine collector, a bar cart is an opportunity to enjoy a fine wine among friends in the most extravagant way possible. It’s all about setting the scene, so it’s important to have everything matched, from the bar cart to the beverage, and even the accessories. 

  • Garnishes
  • Decorative food — like accessories — add to the atmosphere and ambience well. The beauty of a well-decorated bar cart is that it changes the feel and vibe of a room or even a large wine cellar. A wine collector knows how essential aesthetics can be, so it comes as no surprise that any added touch can make a big difference. 

  • Accessories
  • These can vary wildly. From ice buckets and tongs to conventional cocktail-making tools, you have the freedom to decorate your bar cart as you wish. For a more personal touch, you can go for a small plant, a bowl of fruit, or a coloured napkin.
