Weekend Entertainer: Elegant Bar Carts

June 22, 2012 | At Home

Whether serving martinis poolside or on the terrace, keep your summer entertaining breezy and carefree with a well-appointed bar cart. One of today's party essentials, an elegant bar cart creates a fun, retro vibe for cocktail hour and allows the host to ferry libations to thirsty guests in a flash.

When looking for the perfect cart, it's best to focus on those with a set of sturdy wheels to ensure your portable party smooth access to both indoor and outdoor venues—brakes are a plus, too. Carts should also feature trays with a generous rim; you won't want a broken glass to spoil the festive mood. From vintage rattan to bright modern, there’s a smart bar cart ready to roll into your summer cocktail session.
