About Us

Who we are?

We are cocktail people, flavor nerds, tenders of the spark that dwells at the heart of great drink and great conversation.

We are casual tinkerers and connoisseurs, artists and mad scientists, city slickers and small town folks. What binds us together is the search for better and bolder flavors, shared in the company of friends and family.

What we do?

Modern Bar Cart is here to make great cocktails available to everyone.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned pro, or if you’re just beginning your journey as a home bartender. We’ve got you covered with the products and knowledge to help take your creations to the next level.

Why we do it?

We came of age in a “Cocktail Renaissance,” a true rebirth of cocktail history, lore, and excitement. The flavors of this cultural revival flow through our veins, but our eyes look toward the future.

Modern Bar Cart is the innovative space we’ve created to help turn this renaissance into a true REVOLUTION.

Down with hidden speakeasies and cocktail snobbery. Down with overpriced drinks and lousy service. Down with the idea that incredible mixed drinks are a thing of the past.

Cocktails are the new normal. Hang around us long enough, and you’ll find out why.

Why we do it?

“Cocktails are the new normal.
Hang around us long enough, and you’ll find out why.”
