If you hear “old fashioned” and think drink, not decor, then you have the right taste (in every sense of the word) for a modern bar cabinet.
A bar cabinet adds instant sophistication to any room. Place a decanter full of your favorite tipple on top, and you can elevate your evening ritual and impress guests every time you entertain.
The best bar cabinets have space for mixing drinks and plenty of storage for your favorite bottles. A few open shelves will help you display your most stylish glassware and barware (because that brass shaker set shouldn’t be hidden away) while cabinet doors keep things neatly tucked out of sight.
These 12 modern bar cabinets provide all the storage you need in clean-lined, contemporary silhouettes. Your spirits won’t find a more stylish home.
Raise a glass to these 12 modern bar cabinet designs
The only thing “vintage” about these bar cabinets will be your wine collection. Take a look at these 12 modern styles to find the one that’s right for your space. We’ll bring the design ideas. You bring the drinks.
1. Borman 2-Door Bar Cabinet With Wine Storage
This tall bar cabinet is the perfect match for modern bohemian or global-inspired interior design. The double doors are carved with a geometric checkerboard pattern and open to reveal four shelves, complete with a stemware rack, honeycomb-shaped wine rack, and storage drawer. Add a matching sideboard to store your dinnerware and complete your dining room design.
2. Figueroa 5-Shelf Wine Cabinet With Storage Drawer
If your idea of modern decor is as crisp and clean as your favorite white wine, then this bar cabinet will go down smoothly. It features straight geometric lines with glossy white shelves and a chrome frame. A large drawer, two built-in wine racks, and a stemware rack give you storage space for your favorite bottles and barware.
3. Belvedere 5-Shelf Bar Table Storage
One part shelving unit, one part bar table, the Belvedere bar cabinet is like the mixed drink of bar furniture. It features five open shelves, a wine glass rack, and a nine-bottle rack. You can play bartender and let guests step up to share their orders and their stories. Or you can tuck this bar table against a wall. With the same depth as a standard console table, this piece easily fits into a small living room or entryway.
4. Araceli Home Bar Wine Cabinet
So modern it’s practically futuristic, this wine bar cabinet features a glossy white finish and geometric chrome accents. It has six open shelves to store your glassware and barware, plus two stemware racks and a wine bottle rack.
An LED light strip mounted beneath the tabletop helps you get the party started with rotating colors, and the footrest means you can pair this piece with bar stools to create a casual seating area. For the ultimate cocktail connoisseur, the Kinney Bar Cart with its matching white finish and angular chrome frame will give you a complete bar furniture set for entertaining.
5. Mendoza 2-Door Wine Cabinet
This large two-door cabinet is made from engineered wood with a beautiful herringbone pattern across the doors. Much like you would see on a baker’s rack or pantry storage cabinet, the Mendoza wine bar cabinet has a spacious countertop for mixing drinks.
There are four oversized cubbies hidden behind the cabinet doors. And up top, you’ll find a nine-compartment wine bottle rack, a stemware rack, and an open shelf, giving you plenty of room for your favorite liquors and mixers.
6. Claremont Sliding Door Bar Cabinet With Lower Shelf
Make room in your modern farmhouse for more happy hours. The Claremont home bar cabinet features sliding barn doors in a rustic driftwood grey finish. The black metal accents add an industrial edge to your dining room.
With adjustable shelves inside the cabinet, you can customize this piece to fit your needs. The stemware and wine bottle racks lend a modern look to your favorite vintages. Plus this piece is smaller than your average dining room hutch, so it’s the perfect storage solution for small spaces.
7. Alviso Corner Bar Cabinet With Stemware Rack
This corner bar cabinet can squeeze into any space. Its tall, thin silhouette looks as sleek as a highball glass, and the glass doors put your barware on full display. Open shelves allow you to style your bar, show off your shaker, and decorate with your decanter.
8. Ezekiel Wine Cabinet With 2 Sliding Doors
Eat your heart out, Don Draper. Even “Mad Men” couldn’t make a mid-century modern bar cabinet look this good. The contrast of the walnut wood tone and the black edging adds luxe style to your space, while the black door handles look like an extension of the cabinet shelves. With two doors, four open shelves, and six wine bottle cubbies, you’ll be ready to mix up some “Mad Men”-inspired cocktail.
9. Arlette Wine Cabinet With Wire Mesh Doors
With wheels to give you the functionality of a bar cart and plenty of storage space like a liquor cabinet, this home bar offers the best of both worlds. The powder-coated metal frame and wire mesh doors have style that can flex to fit a modern loft apartment or modern farmhouse home.
The compartments inside the cabinet include a wine glass rack and three open shelves. You can display your bar accessories behind the mesh doors or on the spacious tabletop. And when you’re entertaining you can roll this piece from the living room to the dining room for a free-wheeling night of fun.
10. Aconitum 4-Door Wine Cabinet
If you’re going for modern glamor, this bar cabinet is as classy as your wine collection. The mirrored finish adds sparkle to your space, making the room feel lighter and brighter.
The four doors open to give you access to three drawers, three shelves, and a removable wine rack so you can organize your favorite bottles and barware. Use this piece in place of a hutch in the dining room or style it in your living room next to a glamorous velvet sofa and glass coffee table.
11. Evelio Bar Unit With Wine Bottle Storage
For a clean-lined modern design, this wine bar cabinet features a satisfying grid layout that will make your barware look neat and orderly (even if your house parties are not). The 18-bottle rack is ideal for wine connoisseurs, and there’s plenty of storage for your other liquor and mixers with three stemware racks, seven open shelves, and two additional shelves behind the cabinet door.
12. Cheyenne 2-Door Wine Cabinet With Stemware Rack
If you don’t feel confident styling your bar shelves, this engineered wood bar cabinet allows you to put your bottles on display and keep the rest of your collection hidden away behind the two cabinet doors. The understated silhouette, black pull knobs, and weathered acacia wood finish make this piece perfect for modern farmhouse, rustic, or industrial spaces.
It’s time to raise the bar
Including a modern bar cabinet in your space will add panache to your potables and class to your cocktails. Any of the 12 styles above will suit a modern home. The best way to find the one that’s right for your space is to shop in person.
If there’s one modern experience we like to avoid, it’s ordering something online and then discovering it doesn’t look how we thought it would when it arrives.
When you shop at your local Coaster furniture retailer, you’ll not only support an independently-owned business, but you’ll also be able to see each piece in person, open cabinet doors and drawers, and make sure you’re happy with the look, quality, and size of the piece. That way, you can find the perfect modern bar cabinet for your house.
All you need now is the perfect house cocktail. Cheers!
