These bar cart alternatives will absolutely make a bar cart look basic.

We love a good bar cart, no matter what the season. Bar carts will always be one of the trendiest pieces of home décor, no matter the size of your apartment or home. However, some of us don’t have a bar cart due to kids rolling it all over the space, which can be a major disaster, or a bar cart feels overused, and we want to try something a little less mainstream. So what’s a creative way to store booze without it really looking like a bar? From unexpected vintage wooden dresser to secretary desk, these bar cart alternatives are sure to impress your guests!

Bar Dresser

It can be a credenza or console, as long as it has enough space for storing glassware and other bar accessories inside. The long countertop can be used as a space to display drinks, glasses, and maybe a vase of fresh flowers.

Bookshelf

Yes, one of the bar cart alternatives is a bookshelf or a wall shelf. Think: a bar bookshelf in a home office or library. Sounds cool, right?

Built-in Cabinet

Why not turn a built-in cabinet into an Insta-worthy bar display? It can also double as storage for your glassware and other bar accessories, so it’s a win-win.
