We are obsessed with bar carts. We don't know why really- maybe it's the life- long fantasy to live in an M.G.M. world where people dress for dinner, and a cocktail is always ready at 5. We don't think the bar cart need just be used for holding bottles and decanters, and have often thought that good stacked art books and some nice displayed trinkets would work too. This Hanover Bar Cart ($649) is from Restoration Hardware and has beveled glass shelves and is made with nickle plated brass.
