8 Bar Carts Under $500 You Need to Survive the Holidays

silver and gold bar carts
Bring a bar cart home for the holidays to keep your booze organized and help you make hosting a breeze.

A bar cart is one of those maybe not-so-essential items but oh-so-necessary pieces in your home to maintain your style sanity. They're sleek, they're shiny and downright attractive... not to mention, they do serve a purpose: serving you!

While we do believe that a sleek bar cart is an adult home must-have year-round (how else are you going to entertain?), adding a bar cart, big or small, to your home will help you survive the holidays. How?

  • It's a conversation starter -- everyone will be commenting
  • It will keep you organized -- your bottles of booze and cocktail napkins will never look so glam
  • It'll make hosting a breeze -- all your beverage essentials in one area can ensure that your great aunt Betty will be imbibing all night... and out of your hair.

Now, the big question: which one will you bring home? Whether you're crazy about gilded ones, silver ones or industrial-chic styles, we've found one for you.
