Trolley Follies

Cocktail Carts Are Back in Vogue

November 10, 2002|BARBARA THORNBURG

With the resurgence of the cocktail in recent years-from green apple martinis to Cosmopolitans and Manhattans-is it any wonder that bar trolleys are making a comeback? Mobile and versatile, they range in style from three-tiered, lacquered classics such as Vitra's recent reissue of Verner Panton's 1963 Bar Boy, with space for bottles, nuts and glasses, to Michael Heltzer's indoor-outdoor stainless steel serving cart with pivoting front wheels for easy turning. Haus Arrest's Rolletto cart with a glass bowl chills your bottle, while Ross Lovegrove's birch plywood trolley features places for bottles and a removable tray with spots for an ice bucket and plate of hors d'oeuvres. And Italian designer Franco Raggi's Tazio Tre-a transparent glass catering trolley-is ideal for showing off all those colorful cocktail creations. So put on your dinner jacket, pour yourself into that little black dress and step into another era.
