When this stylish brown-black acrylic cart started making the rounds on our Slack channels, there was a flurry of commentary. “Surprisingly nice-looking,” “vintage vibes,” and “’70s chic” all came up. And once we started digging deeper into the reviews of this Amazon best-seller, we also saw everything that makes for a great rolling bar.
Two-Tier Acrylic Home Bar Cart
For one, the throwback look doesn’t carry a vintage markup: It’s just $57 (or $54, if you add on the current 5% coupon). And while narrowly sized for tight spots, the two-tier silhouette is still roomy enough for an assortment of bottles and all the fixings. In the reviews, one happy bartender reveals that it can successfully serve 10 guests at a time with ease. They’ve placed spirits, ice, limes, and other garnishes as well as a few spare glasses on the compact 30-by-11-inch shelves, no sweat.
Plus its headache-free assembly (it ships with the needed Allen wrench) took most reviewers less than 10 minutes, and smooth, 360-degree wheels that can lock into place are an optional part of the installation process. “While easy, it seems really sturdy and stable,” one comment reads. “It looks great to have all the wine and whiskey cups with the drinks below. On the plus side, you can just roll your drink cart anywhere in the living room for easy access.”
But as other shoppers reveal, dishing out drinks is just one way to use this roving storage spot. Turns out, it’s even more useful for its versatility.
Instead of as a home for shot glasses and wine openers, Amazon reviewers have used it to serve tea, display greenery, store crafting supplies (including yarn and a Cricut machine), and corral closet overflow. According to some shoppers, the durability is up for debate, but there are reports that it does live up to the 80-pound-capacity claim (it has held a 25-pound bag of rice and PCs without wobbling). It’s basically an open invitation to get your ’70s on, whether you prefer cocktails or crochet.
