Known for her perfectly unperfect and wonderful style, Cece Kellie also known as The Unperfectionist has got a great eye. Check out her round up of non-traditional bar carts that will leave you craving a drink!

There is something so civilized about having a bar at home. Think back to scenes from “The Thin Man” where everyone is witty, well dressed and the bar well stocked. Yes, Nick and Nora may drink like thirsty fish and a hangover cure is just one Martini away, but their innate sense of style and savoir-faire are readily within our reach. From retro rarity to handy hack, the best places to drink are on Krrb, bar none.
