Bar carts are fun, functional, and versatile additions to your home. In addition to storing your alcohol and favorite glassware, you can also place a bar cart near your front door and even have your it double as your entry table. If you don’t keep alcohol in the house or prefer a dry lifestyle, you could also turn one into a coffee station or use it for bathroom storage. While the decorative possibilities of bar carts appear limitless, a pricey new piece of furniture offering style and secret storage for all your bottles and drinkware recently went viral on TikTok, and it’s just too good not to talk about.

Right after the holidays last year, TikToker Megan Sullivan shared her fancy new bar cabinet from Wayfair. While at first glance, it looks like your everyday storage cabinet, her video showcases that the piece actually features a 007-like revolving door, which reveals three levels of ample shelving inside. The video is less than 10 seconds long and already has 3.3 million views, and folks are still watching and debating whether or not this piece is worth the investment.

With over 350,000 comments, tons of people wanted to know one thing above all: Where is this from? This piece is called the Sinatra Bar Cabinet by Wildwood, and it’s available at Wayfair. Shortly after this TikTok went viral, the cabinet completely sold out online. It’s currently on back-order but available to purchase. I wouldn’t be surprised if it sold out again though because people are clearly loving the novelty of it and its subtle glam look

If you’re interested in this bar cabinet, you’ll want to take a few things into consideration. First, and most importantly, this thing is very pricey. Second, the cabinet only comes in one colorway. The exterior is painted a bright shade of white and features a gold linear design on the front with coordinating shiny gold hardware. On the other side of the revolving door you’ll find a matte blue interior. Of course, if you love design but aren’t sold on the colors, you can always paint it or work a little DIY magic. Either way, this baby went viral for a reason, and I kind of want one for myself.

This Is the One Place You Haven’t Thought to Put Your Bar Cart

This Is the One Place You Haven’t Thought to Put Your Bar Cart

Whether you live in a house or an apartment, certain spots can always be a little tricky to decorate. For some, it’s the tiny half-bath that barely has room for a sink. For others, it’s the empty wall space looming above a headboard. For Abigail, the entryway by the front door was her trouble spot. Luckily, she found a fun little fix that can literally work for anyone, and spoiler alert: It includes a bar cart.

In fact, when Abigail moved into her 415-square-foot studio apartment in San Francisco, she found creating distinct zones in one big open room to be difficult. But she was up for the challenge. “I was very intentional about every inch of space,” Abigail says. “I was able to maximize all 415 square feet and create an entryway, living room, dining room, bar, bedroom, and office out of my tiny space!”

Getting back to that entryway, Abigail didn’t quite know what to do with the little U-shaped slice of space she had to decorate. A tiny half-wall sits opposite her door, and diagonal from that, she had a somewhat sizable stretch of blank wall space just looking to be filled. First, she placed a small bench into the nook right next to the door, as pictured above. Then, instead of opting for a traditional console table to anchor that longer bare wall area, she wheeled in a round rolling bar cart with a pretty gold finish. “I love the aesthetic bar carts bring to a space,” she says.

Abigail styled her bar cart with flowers, art, and tiny champagne bottles — everything you’d need for a warm welcome upon entering her place. The real genius of this decorating move though is the piece’s mobility. In a small space like a studio, flexible furnishings can really help you make the most of a tight layout, and I don’t know about you, but I haven’t seen many classic console tables on wheels just yet.

Bar carts can be a little pricey, ranging from $70 to $700 at stores like Anthropologie. So Abigail says she was “real hype” when she found her chic bar cart at World Market for just $40! No only did she score a great deal, but Abigail’s bar cart also fits perfectly in the entry. If you’re on the hunt for a bar cart of your own, The Home Depot sells one for $131 that’s almost identical to the cart Abigail has. Lowes sells a bigger, rectangular gold bar cart with wood shelves and racks on the second tier that can hold up to six wine glasses and five wine bottles. The one I have is from Lowes, and I absolutely love. It’s chilling in the living room next to my IKEA bookshelf, but now, after seeing Abigail’s place, I just might move mine towards the entry.

Bed Bath & Beyond Just Launched a Chic Bar Cart That’s a Must-Have for Rattan Lovers and Plant Parents

Bed Bath & Beyond Just Launched a Chic Bar Cart That’s a Must-Have for Rattan Lovers and Plant Parents

Apartment Therapy received compensation for this post, which was written and edited independently by our editorial team.

Rattan lovers, boho enthusiasts, and plant parents — step to the front of the line! We’ve found a dreamy new piece that deserves a spot in your home ASAP. Last week, Bed Bed & Beyond launched a brand-new bohemian home line called Wild Sage that includes some seriously fun and eclectic bedding, decor, and accent pieces. One item I couldn’t take my eye off? A gorgeous rattan bar cart that’s equal parts stylish and functional: The Wild Sage Daza Round Rattan Bar Cart.

Weighing only eight pounds, this bar cart is a certified small-space winner. It’s constructed of rattan and natural plywood, so it’ll hold up over time (you won’t believe how much money I’ve wasted on flimsy furniture!), and it features two round shelves that are perfect for housing bottles and glassware. Thanks to its wheels, transporting cocktails, pitchers, and serving platters from the kitchen to your guests is a breeze.

But here’s where it gets better: The cart can be used for so much more than just storing spirits. It can double as an end table for holding a lamp, remote controls, and magazines; a mini book shelf for your favorite novels; or a plant stand for showing off your beloved fern and sansevieria. It’s also ideal for displaying small items and special mementos like picture frames, succulents, and knickknacks. Keep in mind, though: The weight capacity for this bar cart is seven pounds, so it’s not a place to keep super-heavy items for the long run.

While most bar carts tend to be on the pricey side (I’ve seen some in the $800 range), this chic option rings in at $150. A double-duty bar cart that can be used for entertaining or elevating the style of your space for less than $200? Cheers to that!
