If your style skews toward James Bond or Don Draper, requisition this stainless-steel suitcase of bar gear designed by Carsten Gollnick for Germany’s award-winning Carl Mertens tableware company. The Carl Mertens Newport bar case ($729) comes full of specialized weapons against dull drinks, including knife, cutting board, corkscrew, opener, muddler, spouts, shakers, spoon, and more, all made for the company’s debonair Hampton line of barware. Inner pockets can hold cryptic instructions for fabulous cocktails pilfered from enemy spies or printed from the Internet.
