Bar carts are a home trend that shows no sign of waning — and for good reason. They’re stylish, making them a great way to impress your friends with your cocktail savvy and sophistication, not to mention endlessly practical, granting you a way to keep your liquor collection from taking over your kitchen. Not into booze? No worries — bar carts can also be a great place to corral anything you want to display, from your collection of vintage pottery to your favorite fantasy reads.

We’ve rounded up 10 of our favorite bar carts below that work in your living room, dining room, or even an entryway. Plus, they’re all under $250 to guarantee you’ll still have plenty of budget left to stock ’em full of whatever tickles your fancy.

With classic old Hollywood charm, this glass and brass bar cart from Better Homes & Gardens will bring a glamorous touch to your dining room or kitchen. Shoppers say it looks like a CB2 piece, but at a much more budget-friendly price. It has two handles for easy mobility, and spacious shelves with plenty of room to hold even your tallest bottles of wine. There's even three integrated wine bottle holders to ensure a rouge nudge won't tip over your prized bottle of pinot.

This sleek Nathan James bar cart is simple and timeless in the best way.

Very passionate about mixology? This three-shelf bar cart could be the perfect match for your enthusiasm. It boasts the most storage surface area of every cart on our list, with enough space to corral your favorite bottles, cups, cocktail jigs, and more. The glass shelves are tinted a slight amber hue, making the whole piece look far more expensive than its price tag.

This Wayfair bar cart is as versatile as it gets with a chrome and glass design that can easily flex between a variety of decor styles. The shelves are made of tempered glass, so you won't have to worry about them shattering during a particularly rowdy party, and the wheels also have locks to keep everything just-so.

This chic wood, brass, and leather bar cart from Target has shelves that offer plenty of space for your favorite cocktail ingredients or all the makings of an epic coffee bar, while the push handle adds practicality and the ability to easily move the cart from room to room.

The unique curved shape of this bar cart isn't the only thing to love about it. It's tailor-made for those who love to entertain — there are dedicated storage spots for both your glassware and bottles, and the sleek glass top provides plenty of surface area for mixing up your signature drink.

A round cart can save you a bit of space compared to its rectangular counterparts, so this Wayfair bar cart is a great option if you're a bit snug on space. We love the mix of wooden shelves and dark metal frame, but the coolest part is that each shelf can be removed and used as a tray to easily serve cocktails.

This Umbra bar cart is modern and futuristic in a way that we haven't seen before. The chunky white frame and light wood details give it personality and visual interest, while the modest measurements (it's just 30 inches tall and 20 inches wide) mean it's petite enough to sneak into a small corner without sucking up your square footage.

Urban Outfitters

Nothing brings the party quite like an electric yellow bar cart — and of course Urban Outfitters is coming through with the goods. This piece packs on the fun, with clean lines and matte metal framing powder-coated in a zesty hue. It's also one of the larger models on our list, with plenty of space for cocktail books or candles in addition to all your bar accessories.

10 / 10

Most bar carts feel inherently glam thanks to their metal framing, but this one from AllModern somehow skews a bit light and airy. The shelves are made from solid pine but the entire cart is still just 30 pounds, making it easy to move from room to room as you entertain.
