The Home Bar Is Back

The drinks trolley is back, and it’s serenading a new generation of hosts.

The drinks trolley of the bygone age is making a triumphant return to our homes, and we couldn’t be more delighted. Affectionately now referred to as the “bar cart” by those in the know, this has become a firm fixture within ours, and many other Interior Designer’s plans due to it making a striking design feature, whilst being extremely useful.

As the popularity of television cooking shows such as “MasterChef” and “Great British Bake Off” have skyrocketed, the appeal for hosting night’s in, has begun to outweigh the night’s out, and what better way to hosts your guests drink needs than from an easy-access, stylish bar serving station.

With Google bursting at the seams with a 540 per cent increase in searches for bar and drinks trolleys, and entire sections of furniture stores dedicated to statement barware like cocktail shakers, vintage glasses and decanters, it’s clear that now is the time to add a bar cart to your interior.

Try styling your bar cart with various bottles of all shapes and sizes, mixing bought bottles with decanters; blend in an array of beautiful glassware suitable for each drink requirement including specialist cocktails, champagne, and whiskey glasses amongst your normal wine and high-ball glasses.  To add the cherry on the cake (or an olive in the martini, as we should say), look for quirky examples of cocktail shakers, condiment bowls and ice buckets.

Here are a few of our recommendations.
