by Darren Pace for


For many years, a globe cabinet for liquor has been a popular way to store and serve various alcoholic beverages. In fact, some of these special cabinets are hundreds of years old and of museum quality. These cabinets actually originated back in the 17th century and men would come together around these lovely cabinets and talk of all their adventures in various places around the world. While it’s tough to find the original drink cabinets and you probably won’t want to pay the price for a museum quality globe liquor cabinet if you found one, there are many beautiful reproductions available for purchase. Here is a look at a few of the top reasons to purchase one of these beautiful cabinets for your own home.


Reason #1 – A Beautiful Addition to Your Décor

You can find them in a variety of different types of wood and with different finishes as well, which makes it easy to find a globe cabinet that will fit into your style of decor.


Reason #2 – The Bar Rotates for Easy Serving


Another great reason to go with a lovely globe liquor cabinet is the wonderful way that the bar rotates for easy serving. Inside of the globe, there is a bar that rotates and you can store your stemware and your spirits inside. This makes it easy to pour and serve up drinks for yourself and any guests that you may have in your home at the time.


Reason #3 – Chill Your Beverages Too


You’ll also find that a nice globe cabinet will even chill your beverages for you as well. This means you can store your favorite spirits inside of the bar and they’ll be chilled and ready for serving when you are ready to serve. This makes the globes more than just a serving area, but a great place to store things as well.


Reason #4 – Easily Portable


Many of these globe options, even the floor-standing bar globes, are easily portable as well. Some have furniture roller bottoms on them so you can move the globes from place to place. This means that wherever you want to serve up drinks, you can easily move this bar along with you, offering great convenience to you when you are entertaining guests.


Reason #5 – They Provide a Great Conversation Starter


A nice globe liquor cabinet will also provide a great conversation starter when you have guests in your home. Since it is such a beautiful piece, your guests are sure to admire this piece of furniture when they see it. The globe often gets people talking about their own adventures that they have gone on in the world, which is sure to get an interesting conversation going.


Bar Globe World Is Back

You may already know from our Facebook page or other sources that Bar Globe World is back up after being down for a little while. The truth is, there were some technical issues that our web hosts could not (or I’m guessing more like would not) resolve, so we decided to part ways.

Desk accessory globe with clock from Bar Globe WorldWe have several new bar globes on offer, and even entire new bar globe collections by the Italian manufacturer Zoffoli. But we will be sure to write a separate blog post to tell you about those.

Unfortunately there are also some discontinued products like this Pewter Desk Clock with 16th Century Replica Globe. You can find this and other clearance or marked down globe products in our Sales and Deals section – a page you should visit often to make sure you don’t miss out.

We actually only have one pewter desk clock left, even the manufacturer Zoffoli doesn’t have any, so if you like it you should hurry and grab it!

Our website is now on WordPress, just like this blog, and we’re really happy about it – we make all the decisions about what our website can and can’t do. No more web builders for – we are going to have what we need on our website and we won’t have to deal with “sorry, that can’t be done.” Now if we don’t have it, it’s our own fault and there’s no blaming anyone else.

Saying that, we are pretty new at this so please let us know if you encounter any technical or other issues. For that matter, we would appreciate if you simply browse through the new Bar Globe World site and design and let us know what you think – we want all opinions, good or bad. You can be blunt if you want, we promise we can take it.
