AJ Trolley Side Table by Fritz Hansen
For those who can handle non-perpendicular shapes after a few drinks, do we have the trolley for you. Meet the AJ Trolley by Arne Jacobsen for Fritz Hansen. Originally designed for tea, this trolley reeks of the 50s (in a great, non-stale way) and will stand the test of time thanks to its architectural edge.
Dixon Bar Cart by Notre Monde
Bit of a bougie wanker? We didn’t think so either. Expensive taste though? Of course. When only the blingy-est best will do, look no further than the Dixon Bar Cart by Dawn Sweitzer for Notre Monde. Crafted from lustrous mirror and a streamlined metal frame, this cart gulps champagne in its sleep.
Roll back into very stylish Roman times with the Chariot by GamFratesi for Casamania. Consisting of three simple elements: wheel, tray and structure, this mobile table could be hot-wheeling me to my death à la Hunger Games and I’d still be drooling over its so-beautiful-it-hurts proportions.
You can almost smell this bar cart before you see it. Comprised of two walnut timber shelves and lashings of leather (wine rack slings), the Valet Bar Cart by David Rockwell for Stellar Works screams of a lovely time gone by. What’s the little side pouch for? Don’t ask. Cos we don’t know.
When your bar trolley has been gifted the name Happy Hour, you know it’s a good time. And when it looks this good, you could be serving tap water for all I care. A high-functioning serving trolley, the Happy Hour Trolley by Alfredo Häberli for BD Barcelona, is the ultimate in classic lines.
