Has the humble Bar Trolley found a resurgence in the post-pandemic home?

Tom Coley  |  June 2021

Summer is here, and as the idea of entertaining guests both outside and in becomes more of a reality, we take a look at that staple of home entertaining, the Bar Trolley!


Whilst on the surface, a bar trolly or drinks cabinet is nothing more than a functional piece, somewhere handy to store bottles, glasses, and other drinks paraphernalia. During the pandemic, its status in the home has risen as more of us spent time at home looking for ways to keep ourselves entertained and retain a sense of normality.

With this elevated status returned the idea of using the bar trolly as an opportunity to invigorate home decor, as a focal point, somewhere to let loose, and dare we say it, as a piece of art!

Like so many other recent interior trends, this idea borrows heavily from the late 70s and early 80s, arguably the heyday of dinner parties and home entertaining. So, don't limit yourself to typical 'bar' items. Get creative with plants, books, picture frames, trinket boxes, candlesticks, and anything else that makes an impression!

So, whether you have a dedicated trolley, a drink cabinet, a side table in the corner of the room, or just a tray on the sideboard, let your imagination run wild and get styling!
