Raising the Bar

There aren't many things in life I find as satisfying as a stiff dirty martini after work on a Friday.  With martinis on my mind, I wanted to celebrate the art of drinking and barware.  The original liquor cabinet was called a cellaret, and was a small, movable wine cooler that came in to fashion in the 1700s.  They served as an important fixture in the stylish parlors and dining rooms of the Victorian elite, and made their way to the American colonies.  When the flow of alcohol was curbed in the 1920s, the need for secure storage proved all the more important.  Bar cellarets and cabinets kept alcohol out of sight, but never out of mind.  Alcohol consumption did not reach pre-Prohibition levels again until the 1960s, when alcohol was seemingly prevalent everywhere, even in the office for entertaining clients- a la Mad Men.




Whether you prefer to keep your barware and liquor under raps with a bar cabinet or on display with a bar cart, the stylish options are endless.  Here's how I styled mine:





Shop This Board:

1.) Carry on "Moscow Mule" Cocktail Kit $24/2.) Pop Rocks Glasses $14/3.) "Please Don't Tell" Cocktail Book $654.) Downing Bar Cabinet $999/5.) Rablab Agate Coasters $68/
6.) Lilien's Dessert Cocktail Swatchbook $10.27/7.) Gibson Bar Cart $470/8.) Ketel One Vodka $35/

TGIF!  Is it 5 o'clock yet?

  11. Fix your marriage and relationship after a breakup or divorce with the help of a genuine spell caster who brought my wife back to me after a separation!! My wife and I separated 4 months ago and our children, Emily and Brown, live with her in NY, but see me every weekend i needed my wife and children back home, I was totally frustrated and did not know how to bring them back home because i have tried all my possible best all to no avail, as i was browsing on the internet i came across a post on YouTube about Dr Unity who help people with their relationship and marriage problem by the powers of love spells, at first I doubted if such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try, when I contacted him i told him everything and he told me that everything will be fine that my family are going to come back to me, he said all i will do is for me to provide the money for him to buy the items and i did and he told me that he is going to cast a returning spell so that they will come back, he helped me cast a spell and guarantee me that my wife and my children will come back to me and within 48hours, to my greatest surprise, my wife came back to me and started apologizing, now she has stopped going out with men and she is with me for good and for real. you have any problem contact Dr Unity he is real and always ready to solve your problem, Email him at: ( Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ) .
