The Sidecar

Last week, I pitched an idea to my boss- a cocktail cart that I could wheel around the office for Friday afternoon Happy Hours. I promised to find an old cart at a thrift shop and stock it with some basic necessities and let it evolve from there. I'm happy to report, he replied with an enthusiastic "Yes!" But after seeing this Sidecar, made in collaboration by Moore & Giles and famed barman Jim Meehan, I really want this one. 

This made by hand beauty is a true labor of love. Crafted with Virginia black walnut, Tuscan leather, brass rods and polished brass handles, every single component was chosen for the cart's optimal ease and functionality. The tabletop includes two shelves coated in leather to deaden bottle sound and offer reinforcement while the brass handles are flush mounted to prevent interference with the server's shins. 

The Sidecar also doubles as the manliest showcase for one's prized collection of decanters and bottles. It's a conversation piece for sure and meant for the most serious of booze enthusiasts. I keep envisioning how amazing it would be to roll it down the hallways of my office... yet with a price tag of $13,500, that may be a bit of a tough sell.
