Cocktail Cabinets: Your Most Stylish Helper For Exclusive Parties
Oh Hi, Cocktail Cabinet!
We love a good bar cart as much as the next person, but the cocktail cabinet is an evolution of the ubiquitous home bar and is a must for any home entertainer. Let’s call it the Mad Men effect. Almost any cabinet or sideboard can become a cocktail cabinet and it’s a streamlined, child-friendly option – just open the doors for instant speakeasy style and easy-breezy entertaining. Once the party is over, just close the doors… until next time!
Choose a Cabinet That Suits your Style
The joy of the cocktail cabinet is that almost any sideboard and cabinet can be converted to the home minibar of dreams. Fancy a modern Scandi take on the trend? There will be an option for you. Would you like an ultra-contemporary cabinet that is all strange angles and mirrored surfaces? There is sure to be something that fulfils your brief.
Style your Most Sparkling, Alluring Items
Consider choosing some gorgeous stemware, metallic trays, recipe books and, of course, flowers on top of the cabinet to create a stunning visual moment as well as a place to shake and stir. Napkins, shakers and a bowl piled high with fresh citrus are some other styling options to create a mesmerising space that will draw your guests in.
Consider Open Shelving or a Glass Front
You don’t have to hide all that cocktail goodness away! If you love a good open shelving look, display all your boozy fixings on an open shelving or glass-fronted cabinet. If your collection of bottles has doubled and you have outgrown your bar cart, an upgrade to a cocktail cabinet could be for you. Keep everything layered and organised inside for maximum party prep ease.
