If you love to host holiday parties, entertain on the weekend, or just plain enjoy happy hour, you should probably consider owning a bar cart. I purchased my first bar cart last year, and loved styling it so much. It quickly became apparent that it was too small, so I recently upgraded to this handsome unit, The Tibo, from Birch Lane .

Bar carts have grown in popularity in the last couple years, and it’s not hard to see why. Who knew styling a vignette involving liquor could be so appetizing. And can we talk about multi-functional? There are no rules, they don’t have to be used for alcoholic beverages. I have seen plenty sporting Perrier Sparkling Water, fresh lemonade, pretty goblets, coffee, appetizers, and fresh flowers.
I absolutely love the amount of space on my new bar cart. It fits perfectly in our breakfast nook, and can easily become a caddy for extra plates and napkins during a get together, all the while still having extra space for drinks.
Bar Cart Necessities
For everyday use, here are a few necessities I think every bar cart should house:
- Pretty booze
- Clear cocktail glasses and wine goblets
- Ice Bucket
- A tray for accessories
- Cocktail shaker and shot glass for measuring
- Bar tools
- Conversation piece or two
Even though I don’t own any, vintage barware would be super fun displayed!
I think the best quality about a bar cart is the fact that it’s on wheels. Whatever festivity you are hosting, placing the bar cart in an appropriate spot where it’s accessible will create another place to mingle.
This particular bar cart is currently out of stock, but Birch Lane has so many amazing alternatives. I chose my top 5 and linked them for you, and they even show several styling options.

I have a little Easter sprinkled in the mix currently, but here is a photo showing my ‘everyday’ bar cart styled.
What did I do with the smaller cart purchased last year? Why… it’s in the bedroom, of course 😉 I kept it, because having more than one is perfectly ok!! I actually have one on our deck too!! Like I said, multi-functional. The smaller round works as a side table too, and a small lamp would actually be perfect in that corner.
Linked below are several bar cart essentials. Let me know if I have convinced you that you too need a bar cart in your life. If you have one already, hooray!! I would love to know where you have yours displayed and with what accessories.
