Been there, love it: "Cozy Bavarian pub room transports visitors to Europe."


The Bingham house was part of the New Albany Historic Home Tour in 2010 (when I took the photo here), and I was enamored of the Bavarian-style pub snug.

Needless to say, it is a vivid evocation of Central European interior design, and as such, is sure to make one crave Kellerbier and Brotzeit.

To step into this room in David Bingham's New Albany home is to step into an atmosphere reminiscent of a German beer garden, complete with ceramic drinking steins from Munich and Luxembourg and old watercolor paintings from Austria.

The wooden sign over the door reads, “Bingham Gasthaus.”

“This is really a fall and winter room,” said Bingham, who owns the 148-year-old house with his wife, Elee Bingham. “It’s small and warm. It just has that kind of autumn feel.”
