Where to buy a bar cart

Bar carts aren’t hugely popular in large furniture stores but are starting to appear a bit more regularly, eg. on average, I’d come across one bar cart per store I’ve been looking at recently in Australia.

US shoppers should have better luck as you have more furniture stores than we do in Australia, eg. West Elm, Williams SonomaPottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Shop DandyKohl’sWorld Market, Shop HorneHayneedle, Unbeatable SaleOne Kings Lane, Crate and Barrel, TargetLayla Grace, Horchow, Serena & Lily, BellacorNeiman Marcus etc usually have something in stock.

The good news is that some of these stores are beginning to offer international shipping, so keep an eye out for this.







I bought our silver Art Deco-style bar cart at an Australian store called Adriatic Furniture, not normally a place I shop, but I got lucky this time, so it’s a lesson in doing your research and perhaps trying places you wouldn’t normally go.

I’d highly recommend that in general you avoid the mainstream stores and search online (eg. eBay) and in markets, antique and secondhand shops, but this is because I prefer to have more individual items rather than things that every man and his dog use to decorate their homes.






The best online store I’ve come across which has heaps of options is Society Socialhere is the bar cart section on their website, and also their Facebook page. Several of their carts are featured in our bar cart photo gallery.

Online retailer Amazon also has some – see this link to browse through the options, and occasionally the big box stores such as IKEA and Target. Perhaps consider buying a cheap version and updating it through metallic paint and new mirror inserts? Another place I’ve found some at for Australian buyers is Zanui.
