Blumenbar Verlag GmbH&Co KG is a small avantgarde publishing house in Germany. Blumenbar is German for "bar of flowers", alluding its beginnings in the Blumenstraße close to the Viktualienmarkt in Munich in 2002. The two founders, Lars Birken-Bertsch and Wolfgang Farkas, publish non-mainstream authors such as Matias Faldbakken or Tracey Emin. The graphic design of the books (by Chrish Klose) is especially noted. In 2009, Blumenbar moved to Berlin.
