Raise the Bar on Entertaining with these Stylist Favorite Bar Cabinets

best bar cabinetsIf you’re still rolling with a bar cart, it might be time to consider switching up to a stylish and functional bar cabinet! For 2020, we’re seeing the decor focus shift from carts to cabinets for housing barware. Unlike carts, cabinets feature hidden storage, so there’s no need to worry about perfect styling because you don’t have to keep everything out on display. (Not to mention there’s a lot less dusting!) The bar cabinet trend is a more holistic approach because it weaves the home bar into your whole decor scheme.

With the holidays right around the corner, you might be looking to add a bar area to your space—a well-stocked (and styled) bar is the key to a great party, after all. This year, you can raise the bar on entertaining with a show-stopping bar cabinet in your home! Here are some of our stylists’ picks for the best bar cabinets in the game.
