Special Honors

Imelda Bar Cart For a truly special party, this piece has a gorgeously crafted iron frame and decorative European-style brass finials for accents. This cart definitely lives up to it's name in styling and price. frontgate.com

Abrego Wicker You can add a bit of fun to your outdoor parties with this uniquely-shaped cart. Woven from a durable synthetic that closely resembles real wicker, this piece is made to withstand the outdoors, but you don't get a lot of actual storage space for the high price. potterybarn.com

Editor's Notes

July 26, 2019:

Since most serving carts won't be put away when the party is over, but usually left out providing extra storage space, we prioritized style and function equally when evaluating the best. Sturdiness and durability were also important factors, as these carts are frequently transporting plenty of glass items when in motion.

We removed the eHome Products Chrome Metal because it is no longer available, but we added Coaster Home Furnishings Chrome as an even more elegant glass and metal choice with its pleasing rounded styling.

Another notable addition to the list is the Dofurnilim Utility because the shelves are hand-finished solid wood and with real metal pipes as a frame, it can support a substantial amount of weight. We didn't place it in the top spot though because it requires about 70 screws for assembly and they holes are not pre-drilled.
