Welcome to today’s history lesson. Today we’re discussing the origins of the bar cart. (It’s actually interesting, I swear.) The first iteration of the modern bar cart was the Victorian Era tea trolley! It wasn’t until the end of Prohibition, in 1933, that the bar cart became associated with cocktails, and it wasn’t until the 1950s that they became popular for hosting parties.

Okay, class dismissed. Now time for your homework: Pick your fave bar cart from this lineup of 11 affordable ones. Bottoms up!
