A rattan bar cart is an excellent investment in the sense that you can keep it outdoors for seasonal celebrations and roll it indoors in inclement weather. Plus, its retro-tropical silhouette is guaranteed to promote the use of colored cocktail parasols, hollow pineapples, and vintage “Welcome to Paradise” shot glasses.
Here are 10 of our favorite rattan bar carts, to kick off a long season of outdoor entertaining.
