Top 10 Best Liquor & Wine Bar Cabinets

1. Half sideboard wine cabinet with cooler space

Wine connoisseurs sneer at storing wine bottles in non-refrigerated cupboards. Genuine snobs and true wine lovers store their wines in a wine fridge at the exact correct temperature.

When ordering this half sideboard cabinet make sure to communicate the dimensions of your cooler to the seller. The standard cooler space dimensions are; 18(W) x 20(D) x 26(H).

Also keep in mind that by default the cooler opening is facing the sideboard which is on the left side (not on photo). You can even customize the type of wood stain on the sideboard.

This contemporary design black oak bar cabinet stores 6 wine bottles and 8 glasses and will fit in modern and more classic interiors.

The handy top drawer to keep your bar tools and other accessories and the aforementioned spacious bottom slide out drawer for large bottles.

The fact that it allows little to no sun light to reach the bottles helps maintain the quality of your wines. Artificial light from bulbs is unlikely to damage your wine but sunlight does.

What makes this bar cabinet so versatile is that it allows you to store not just wine glasses but champagne glasses, tumbler glasses, snifter glasses, or your large Olivia Pope glasses.

It’s not the most sturdy wine cabinet on the market as things like the rails of the slide out drawer being secured with only two screws or the flimsy back panel leave a bit to be desired in terms of robustness.
