Chic Bar Cart

A bar cart is a must-have for anyone who loves to entertain outdoors during warmer months. If you plan to keep your cart outside year-round, choose a durable material that can handle outdoor elements, such as bamboo, rattan or wicker. And, last but not least, stock the cart with booze, glasses, cocktail napkins, and small appetizers.
