The party may start in the kitchen, but it doesn't usually stay there. A bar cart is one of the prettiest ways to keep the cocktails flowing and the party going in more comfortable rooms of the home. Here are 11 bar carts with good looks and proper wheels to help your soiree roll along late into the night.

A bar cart is an especially nice investment for those of us with small kitchens. If you don't have a spare cabinet to keep your liquor, then put it on display on a glam bar cart, and stack your glassware there too. These don't take up much room and they make a swanky addition to the living room.

  1. RÅSKOG Cart, $49.99 at IKEA. As seen at Sugar & Cloth - This incredibly popular cart from IKEA is versatile and a good buy. Love the way it's styled here by Sugar & Cloth.
  2. Layla Bar Cart, $149 at Urban Outfitters - Small and just glamorous enough for any studio apartment.
