Whether it’s an impromptu get together or a grand affair, organization is key to make hosting a breeze. Moore & Giles has collaborated with barman Jim Meehan to create The Sidecar, a stand-alone bar cabinet with world class bar design and timeless aesthetics. The Sidecar also serves as a handsome hutch to showcase decanters or prized bottles; and is the ideal place to store bar tools and glassware.
A water-jet cut aluminum frame reinforces the stained Virginia Black Walnut and Birch wood to ensure durability. The tabletop is bookended by two shelves padded with leather to deaden sound and reinforce the surface from wear and tear levied by repeated use of up to six bottles stocked on each end.
The thin brass rods form orderly bins for storage of tumblers, highballs, pilsner, wine and cocktail glasses. Polished brass handles are flush mounted into each Tuscan leather inlaid door to prevent interference with the server’s shins.
The long cabinet conceals a handmade brassbound wooden bin, accessible from either side of the cart via a sliding drawer, which may be lined to dispose of watery service ice. The shallow drawer above the long cabinet is perfect for coasters, the PDT Cocktail Book and bar tools.
The bar cabinet has leather-wrapped hexagonal brass handles to secure the bottles, with built-in caddies located below house leather-lined serving trays.
The Sidecar measures 49” W x 36.5” H x 23” D and comes with a suggested retail price of $13,500.
To a home bar that’s welcoming and functional. We’ll drink to that.
