Best Bar Carts of 2021 - The Official List

The best bar carts of 2021: use this list as a springboard for bar cart shopping, a way to gauge some of our favorite features of the year and what customers are saying about them. Happy hour specials have never felt so stylish!

Best Overall Bar Carts

In this section, we chose two popular bar carts that just can’t be ignored for style, affordability and customer ratings and reviews. Other features that went into the selection include material type, durability and storage space.

Jaxon Wine Cabinet

Best Features: Bottle storage - darker finish
The metal bolt details of the Jaxon bar products (see below for another piece of the collection, in lighter grey) distinguish it. Industrial-inspired hardware for the drawer and door handles (hammered pewter pulls) contrasts against the solid pine wood construction, here dazzling in a dark café finish. 

While a photo on a screen can only show so much, up-close and in-person, the knots, imperfections, splits and nicks add a form of authenticity, making the cabinet feel like it’s the master work of a humble yet talented carpenter with an eye for detail, who takes his lodgings in a log cabin in the middle of some quaint woods, and who spends his days doing what he loves most: crafting wooden cabinets to perfection.

In terms of storage, the Jaxon Wine Cabinet has plenty to go around. Divided into three parts, it’s got the following: a right column of cubbies in grids for containing individual wine bottles, a left cabinet space for storing linens, dishes and other large items and a top left drawer for the smaller accessories like napkins, corkscrews and coasters. The material of the entire storage piece is also one for the books, as 100% solid pine is not something you see in everyday furniture available on the market, adding instant quality and value and making this design one you’ll not want to let go of anytime soon.

Jaxon Grey Wine Cabinet

Best Features: Bottle storage - lighter finish
The Jaxon Grey Wine Cabinet is identical in every way to the Jaxon Wine Cabinet for size, storage and material – the only distinctive quality being the lighter, more modern grey finish. Combined with a grey finish, the grains of the solid pine wood get a chance to sing a little more than they do in the Jaxon Wine Cabinet (the first on this list), giving a more natural and organic, raw feel as a whole.

Best Contemporary Bar Cart

In this section, we go over our favorite bar cart for contemporary style – meaning anything with a modern edge. Best for glam, luxe and contemporary/modern looks.

Two Tier Silver Rolling Bar Cart

Best Features: Tiered shelves
A tiered look is always a favorite for modern and contemporary styles, and in this case, means double the storage space for bottles, tumblers and other bar cart touches.

Best Industrial Bar Cart

In this section, learn about our favorite industrial design: the Amos 3-piece bar set. We chose it specifically for those looks that are a bit rougher around the edges.

Amos 3 Piece Bar Set

Best Features: Acacia and veneer
Wood and metal are always the happy couple in an industrial environment, and the Amos set pieces them together perfectly. Bistro stools are a bonus for seating, and acacia wood and veneers mean rustic style and quality design.

Featured Customer Reviews for Best Bar Carts

“I absolutely love this piece. I had returned to Living Spaces several times to look at it again and again. I finally purchased it and was not disappointed upon delivery. It is sturdy and well-built. It's beautifully painted and fits perfectly with the other pieces in my home. I love that you can use the storage section for spirits, glasses or even table linens. It holds all of my wine and more. I have received so many compliments on it. I highly recommend this piece.” – Patrice (Jaxon Wine Cabinet review)

“We love this cabinet - it's really sturdy. Solid pine all the way through and feels like a piece that will last forever. The drawer slides are so smooth and well done - have already gotten a lot of compliments and am planning on purchasing the matching dining table.” – rkwarren21 (Jaxon Wine Cabinet review)

“The Jaxon wine cabinet has been a great addition to my apartment. The glass & accessory storage really helps and the wine storage is perfect. Adds a slightly different feel & look to the place that makes it even more inviting. And, it complements the big screen TV mounted above it.” – ChuckRC (Jaxon Wine Cabinet review)

“Large enough that you can fit other types of bottles in them, which is nice. The cabinet also has plenty of room with adjustable shelves. It is a solid piece of furniture that is going to last for a very long time. I would recommend this bar to a friend.” - Ashley (Jaxon Grey Wine Cabinet review)

“I live in an apartment with a decent-sized kitchen but wanted a little more counter and storage space. This wine cabinet not only went well with the kitchen itself, but is also very beautiful. The color changes with the lighting, so it never appears too dark or too bright in the space. It holds wine, but was also wonderfully surprised it could hold some of my other liquors in the cubbies. The cubbies on the far right have a tiny bit (0.25"-0.5") more space because of the design. I absolutely love it. Very happy with this buy and happy with Living Spaces as well.” – Desi (Jaxon Grey Wine Cabinet review)

“I have had a vision about how I wanted my bar wall to look. The Jaxon wine cabinet checked all my boxes. Room for all of my liquor bottles, plus room for wine. Coordinates great with my other previous purchases from Living Spaces.” – Annie (Jaxon Grey Wine Cabinet review)

“Excellent quality... I get so many compliments! Love it!! – Cordoza (Amos 3 Piece Bar review)
