When autumn rolls around, I start to think about entertaining. At our house, entertaining inevitably includes cocktails. Last year, around this time of year, I was considering acquiring a bar cart. I love the look and the versatility of a beautifully styled bar cart. We never ended up buying a bar cart, so our liquor sits on top of our buffet, cluttering up the place.
I restarted my search for a solution again this year. I have realized, however, that my real life is not always perfectly styled. I have small children, a career, and a variety of commitments. I don’t always have time to keep a bar cart tidy, and I don’t really want little hands to reach bottles and glasses. As a result, I have decided that a closed bar cabinet is a better solution than a bar cart in our house.
So, I have been on a hunt. I have been pleasantly surprised by the number of bar cabinets available. I have found them in multiple hues, shapes, sizes and price points. I have not really decided on anything yet, but I have had a lot of fun looking. Here are a few of my favorites.
