In the Garden & Gun offices, you’ll find a few items you might not see in a typical corporate environment. A ham stand in the kitchen. A joggling board by the entry. Rope swings near the art department. And bar carts in nearly every office—stocked for celebrating at a moment’s notice. When choosing a bar cart for your home, think of it as the easy-going friend of furniture: It adds to the scene, and it travels well. Want to throw a porch party? Roll out a bar cart! Does your house feel a little stiff and uptight? Just add a bar cart! Here are nine stylish options to get you started.

Copper-Plated Crowe Utility Cart

This is a little like the Moscow mule of bar carts, thanks to the handsome copper-plated construction. $280; Food52.com

Wood and Metal Bar Cart

The most versatile style: a one-two punch of wood and metal. $166; Overstock.com

Bailey Bar Cart

Acrylic pieces work well in small spaces because they disappear into their environment, rendering bottles and glassware the stars. $199; OneKingsLane.com

Bennett Bar Cart

This bright, bold turquoise design feels right for summer. $73; Wayfair.com

South Seas Bar Cart

Because I am Southern, and living in this part of the country is akin to living in a sauna, I am drawn to all things breezy and tropical, like this rattan-ish cart, which would look perfect on a screen porch. $598; SerenaandLily.com

Sagebrook Home Bar Cart

Display signature party cocktails in tidy rows for guests on this classic tray-table style. $122; Wayfair.com

Outdoor Wood Bar Cart

This teak piece will stand up to the elements in a backyard or by a pool. $279; WestElm.com

Metal, Wood, and Leather Bar Cart

A wonderful riff on a silhouette made popular decades ago, reimagined in metal, wood, and leather. $120; Target.com

Marin Rope Bar Cart

Rope isn’t just a theme in nautical décor—it’s timeless and organic and casual, just like sisal and other natural woven textures. $498; SerenaandLily.com
