Styling A Bar Cart

Here are her five top ideas for outfitting a cart that looks as good as the cocktails you’ll serve up taste.

1. Keep It Simple

You don’t need to fill every inch of the cart with bottles—just focus on the essentials. You just need are a few quality spirits to make the classics, whatever else you love, a good set of cocktail tools, and some glassware. Buying less random pieces means you can spend that money on higher-quality spirits. If you extra bottles, choose the best-looking ones to display on your cart.

2. Look Local

3. Use Accessories

Try to purchasing spirits from a small or local distillery that offers pretty packaging, as long as the liquors taste good! You may find that your new favorite whiskey is from right across town.

Now is the time to play with color, pattern, and texture. Decor items like colorful straws or custom coasters can add a touch of your own taste while also being functional. Vintage bar accessories such as cocktail stirs or picks are also a charming addition.

4. Add Some Life

If there is a space that needs filled, fresh flowers or greenery are always a good idea. Add a small bouquet that complements your current decor or make room for a permanent plant. You can even consider growing an herb, such as rosemary, mint, or basil – those can be added to make fresh cocktails!

5. Use Your Books

Cocktail recipe books are a great way to decorate and can add a little color, or neutral pop, depending on your needs. You can use them as a base to elevate a particularly pretty bottle.

I have been in the real estate business in the Southwest Florida market for many successful years and will be here for many more! This longevity and confidence comes from my real estate services to a great many buyers and sellers, and their recommendations to others that result in repeat and referral business that keeps me productive and successful. As a full service Fort Myers real estate professional, I work with buyers, sellers and investors in real estate transactions spanning all of the price ranges and property types. Residential Single Family – My residential single family services connect buyers with sellers every day, and I do it with professionalism and a total dedication to my clients. This property type is the majority of my market transactions, but by far not the only one in which I have expertise. Condominiums – While condominiums are residential, they’re a very different market focus, and I am an expert in evaluating condos and helping buyers and sellers to cope with the special financing and homeowner concerns for this property type. Multi–family – Investors are great clients for me. Multi–family properties are a very unique market. The detailed return on investment and valuation calculations investors need to evaluate properties for rental are second nature to me. Commercial – Whether it’s a shopping mall, a small office building or a restaurant space, I'm your commercial property specialist. Contact me for your commercial property needs in the Fort Myers real estate markets. Vacant Land – Land is a very special property class. It’s relatively easy to show a gourmet cook a wonderful commercial kitchen in a home and see their eyes light up. It’s more of a challenge to help a buyer or seller to realize the potential in a piece of land. I'm the best at it in the Fort Myers real estate markets. Call me at 239-682-5442 or email me to start a discussion of your needs. Or, fill out this quick form and tell me about your property interests and an overview of your needs.
