The holidays are just around the corner, and there’s no better way to kick off the season than a fully stocked bar. And one of the best mediums for your top-shelf booze is a good bar cart. Aesthetically, there’s a certain vintage charm to these pieces, but they also make functional sense—unlike a bar cabinet, they can easily be transported from room to room, depending on where you plan on imbibing. That being said, you’ll also need a couple of other bar accessories to round out your set. Here, a few of our favorites—because when it comes to entertaining, tools of the mixology trade are just as important as the spirits you’ll be stirring.
