To add a few details

As stated by other 5-star reviews, this product is of excellent quality, weight, functionality, and finish. To try to add something new: I (of course, like all others) worried about the doors rubbing on the bottom base or top counter when closed. This rubbing will surely wear off the finish in time, should yours rub. My experience: assembled the product the first time, tested one door = all good; smooth closure without rubbing. Tested the second door = rubbed the bottom edge. Attempted to check the hinge and that did not appear to be adjustable. Tried to pull up on the second/rubbing door a bit to see if this would work, to no avail. My advice: don't stop there and say "oh well" as some of the lower-star reviewers seem to have done. I completely disassembled that door, rebuilt it slowly, step-by-step, making sure the connections were as snug as possible, and tested it = all good. Not rubbing in the slightest with good clearance on the top and bottom. We've been using it for about a month now and are very happy with the piece.

I had wanted to have a bar at home for a long time and tried to have it designed, but was afraid it might not fit the style of the house. I found this after searching for a while for a simple but good quality looking bar cabinet. I have been very pleased with it. It looks quality and well designed. The holes for the wine could have been a little bigger and longer since some of the bottles do not fit. Also the slots for the glass stems do not work with all glasses. I have to find cocktail glasses with smaller base. Also the shelves could have been a bit taller for certain bottles. Other than that I could not be happier. It is a fun and utility friendly unit. It came in 3 pieces. I had asked my carpenter to come and assemble it since I did not want to deal with any surprises, but everything fit well. There were some minor nicks from transporting but nothing you could not cover with a little touch up thing. I recommend this bar highly.
good, but ...

the quality of the wood is nice, feels sturdy, not cheap. easy enough to install though I experienced a few hiccups. i'm a total novice at putting things together (it was actually my 1st time putting something this large together). I did it by myself, but i definitely could've used some help at a number of spots. the item arrives in 3 separate boxes. each itempanel comes individually wrapped and thankfully, there is still an inner box within the outer box (i say thankfully because 1 of the boxes had a large, DEEP CUT on it and it had actually gone thru both carton boxes, but luckily stopped at the styrofoam lining the inner box. the instructions are easy if you read 'em slowly and carefully follow. every panel is w a letter sticker so you can identify pieces correctly. i ordered the black one which smelled like it was freshly spray painted, so that needed a week or so to air out.

I purchased this cabinet in anticipation of a holiday event that I was holding in my home.
Tons of storage
Kevin from New York– Verified Buyer
This bar cabinet stores almost all of our bar glassware as well as liquor, wine, cocktail shakers and other bar accessories. We have decided to leave it open for now and always have the option to close it up. It's a great space saver and looks and feels sturdy and like it cost a lot more than it did.
Douglas from Henrico, VA– Verified Buyer
Arrived quickly just in time for holiday parties. Came in two separate boxes. The sheer volume of pieces seemed overwhelming at first, but my wife and I assembled it in a fairly short amount of time. The two fold out tops are quite heavy so it's good to have a second set of hands with those. Only issue we've had is that the left door has sagged or leaned in toward the center and now drags against the bottom of the cabinet scraping off the finish when shutting the door. I haven't found a way to fix it at this point. All hinges/screws are tight so I'm not sure what's caused this issue.
great price but assembly is time-consuming
Nicole J from Hoboken, NJ– Verified Buyer
This same piece is sold elsewhere for a lot more money, so I was excited when I found it on Wayfair. The cabinet arrived pretty quickly, in 3 separate boxes. My husband put it together over a period of many hours. I think if 2 people worked together, it could be assembled more quickly. The finish of the cabinet is very attractive, although there was one piece that arrived damaged, where the finish is chipped off of the top corner of the right side. Unfortunately, my husband assembled while I was out and didn't think to call Wayfair to ask for a replacement; he just assembled it as it was. By the time I got home to see the damaged piece, he'd already attached it to the other parts and we couldn't disassemble to send it back for a replacement. It's not super-sturdy (the pegs on the door shelves keep popping out of the side of the door), but that could be user assembly error. Compared to competitors' prices it was a good find; I just wish we hadn't received a damaged piece of material and that it was more sturdy. Better yet, I wish it could've shipped assembled!

Someone was supposed to assemble this unit but never showed up. I decided to do it myself. Except for help with lifting the heaviest pieces I completed the job in about 6 hours over 2 days.

We found a bar almost exactly like this one at Crate and Barrel and fell in love with it. We decided not to buy it in the store that day because we didn't have a way to get it home. Once I got home, I decided to do some research and found this bar for almost $500 cheaper, plus, free shipping, so we purchased this one instead. We love it! It is classic and has a lot of room for storage. The only negative is that I wish the shelves in the door were adjustable so I could store more "normal size" liquor bottles.
Michael from Moreland Hills, OH
The only reason I gave this 4 starts instead of five is because it took so long to unpack and put together. However, once we got it together the piece looked great and was able to house all of our liquor and most of our glasses. The only other note I will make is that the area designed to hang the glasses really only fits standard size stemware. We had a few larger margarita glasses that wouldn't fit into the slots.
