Best Bar Cabinets in 2022

Cocktail lovers know that a growing collection of home bars is a great thing. According to Kate Boushel (director of beverage and education at Groupe Barroco), storage for all those bottles can be an afterthought. She says, “This is where bar cupboards shine.” Their purpose is to provide customized space for your wine, spirits, and barware. I love them because they have more storage space than the mobile bar cart. Bar cabinets are multifunctional and can be a statement piece in any space. Read on to find our experts’ picks for the best bars cabinets for this year.

Best Overall: West Elm Vivien Bar Cabinet

Boushel explains that a bar cabinet is similar to a credenza. It has various storage options to hold your best bottles, glasses, and barstool. Together, she says, these factors make hosting much more convenient and save you time in the kitchen and bar.

West Elm’s West Elm Vivien cabinet is one of Boushel’s favorite designs. It features a retro-chic curved framework, brushed brass hardware and two adjustable shelves. There are eight bottles built-in wine racks and a glass rack that holds 18 standard wine glasses. Additional storage is available on the back of the doors.

Best Small: Boahaus Modern Two-Door Mini-Bar

This Bauhaus bar cabinet is small and compact. This compact cabinet is great for small spaces and provides ample storage. It also has five wine bottle slots above the standard liquor bottles. Depending on their size and shape, you can hang up to three wine glasses from the section above the rack. If you are creative enough, you can fit small bottles of bitters, tinctures, books or a cocktail mixer underneath the glasses.

The cabinet’s top looks simple and clean. It is ideal for bottles, books, and other barware. The best part is that the assembly was simple, and the cabinet was very durable for the price. The Bauhaus Modern Mini Bar is an excellent choice to get the best value for your money.

CB2 Fayette Corner bookcase with storage is the best corner

This Art Deco-inspired CB2 piece is the corner bar cabinet you have been looking for. Fluted mango double doors reveal an oak interior, with two adjustable shelves for bottles and barware. The cabinet’s surface and three bookshelves provide a convenient display area for your valuable bottles, cocktail books, and other items. There are many storage options.

Baxton Studio’s Mid-Century Two-Tone Wine Cabinet is the Best Tall

A tall, classic-looking bar cabinet with rich wood tones and classic design is the best way to say “stately”. The Baxton Studio Mid-Century Two-Tone wine cabinet looks like an armoire or coat rack. But the interior is quite different. It has four shelves, two drawers and stemware racks to hold 18 wine glasses. This cabinet is great for people who have a lot of space and have a good stock of bottles, serveware and other accessories.

This cabinet measures nearly 69 inches tall, 28 inches wide, and 17 inches deep. This piece will require assembly and may be shipped in multiple boxes. However, it is well worth the effort and the incredible price.

Best indulgence: Restoration Hardware Vintage French Factory Cart

The two-door Vintage French Factory Bar Cart from Restoration Hardware is a favorite piece. It’s ideal for people who are focused on design or dedicate time to building great home bars. However, it’s an investment.

What you need to know: Edgerton says that once you have your cabinet, the most important thing is what it contains. You can cover your classics with vodka, gin and whiskey as well as sweet and dry vermouths, Campari and Cointreau, Angostura bitters, sugar and honey. You can make various classic cocktails right from your home by adding citrus. Pro-tip: Keep your vermouth refrigerated. It keeps it fresher for longer.
