What Is a Wood Bar Cart?

A wood bar cart is a mobile storage unit primarily used to store, prepare, and serve drinks. Wood bar carts come in many different shapes and sizes, and there’s a design to suit every home. Some carts come with bottle racks or stemware glass holders, some come with removable trays, and some come with towel racks.

What to Consider Before Purchasing a Wood Bar Cart

Buying a wood bar cart isn’t something you do lightly. Your bar cart will be a significant part of your home, but it also has to function.


Make sure you take accurate measurements of the space you want your cart to fit into. Even if you do not intend to fit it into a specific area, you’re still going to want an idea of how big it is

Bottle and Stemware Capacity

Most wood bar carts list their bottle and stemware capacity in the product information. For instance, it’s essential to know how many bottles and glasses your new cart can handle, so you can determine if it suits your needs or not.

Sustainable Wood

With timber disappearing every day, it’s essential to ensure any wood products you buy have been sustainably sourced. For example, wood sourced sustainably is less harmful to the environment and supports local tradespeople fairly.


Your wood bar cart has to fit in with the rest of your home, so remember to consider design and styling carefully. If your lounge is modern and minimalist, you probably don’t want a traditional-looking bar cart and vice versa.

Cupboards, Drawers, and Towel Racks

If you’d like more than the standard bottle and glass storage, look at the product information for details on extras like towel racks. Nevertheless, you may also want to consider whether you would prefer a wood bar cart with a cupboard, drawer, or both, instead of shelving alone.


Wood bar carts come with different numbers of tiers. For instance, you may want a smaller cart with just two tiers, or you may decide you’d prefer a larger one with three or more tiers.
