My husband and I host a lot of dinner parties because we love spending time with our closest friends and I'm a sucker for creating big feasts. Even though we don't own a home bar (we're currently in the process), my husband would set out all of the liquors and wine on the kitchen island. Most of the time, I hated it because I needed the space for setting up the food. I remember complaining about it to one of my friends and she suggested buying a bar cart.
I knew what bar carts were but buying one never crossed my mind. My husband would be able to lay out all of the drinks on it and it wouldn't be in the way of my food! After looking up different bar carts, I realized how expensive they were and didn't want to spend so much. Then I researched a bit more and stumbled upon a large variety of luxurious bar carts under $250! Not only are these prices for these bar carts a steal, but they're in top condition and can be the perfect piece for your dinner parties.
