Perfect for cocktail hour or even afternoon tea, Asda is selling a gold drinks trolley for just £30, £56 cheaper than an almost identical version at Habitat.

When Asda’s metal gold trim drinks trolley was originally launched last year however it still remains one of the best bargain drinks trolleys if you're looking to create a home bar for your festive celebrations.

The gold touch on both designs adds a touch of class and glamour when you’re serving drinks for guests or yourself. A bar as part of your living room ideas transforms the space into the ultimate entertaining area and makes having drinks a more relaxing affair.

The Asda drinks trolley has a high-end finish with gold-tone metal and glass shelves - a rare feature to find in such an affordable drinks trolley. Measuring H85cm x W38cm x D67 cm so there is plenty of space for your favourite gin bottles and to try out some of Angel Strawbridge's bar cart styling tips

The wheels have stoppers in place to ensure safety, meaning it won't wheel away and leave you feeling tipsier than you actually are. The handle is the final elegant touch and the biggest difference between the two bar carts. 

Ideal Home's Deputy Editor Rebecca Knight has a similar Asda drinks trolley in black and has had it for over a year and is still in love with it. ‘I picked up the slightly cheaper black Asda bar cart and was seriously impressed with the quality. It came flatpacked, but you'd never know, it's sturdy, and I don't regret buying it on impulse over a year ago.’

The Habitat Kayleigh drinks trolley in gold was originally priced at £120 but has recently dropped in price to £84. For the slightly higher price, this drinks trolley offers more space with dimensions H75, W40.5, D66cm. 

The rich gold colour will compliment most interiors, while the round shape provides an eye-catching focal point. The product comes fully assembled so is easy to slot into your space without any DIY nightmare scenarios. 

With four wheels the cart is easy to manoeuvre so you play around with the positioning until you find the right spot for it. Even if you don’t drink, the cart would make a beautiful showcase for your best chinaware or a luxury alternative side table. 

No matter which drinks trolley you choose, both will add a touch of sparkle to cocktail hour!
