The Baltic is probably one of the most exciting and fast growing areas of Liverpool; once the well-worn factory and workshop of the city back in the slave trade of the 1800s, now a thriving and cutting-edge destination that is at the heart of the Independent Liverpool scene and is home to a number of digital and creative businesses. Unlike other cultural quarters of Liverpool, the Baltic is not polished and prepared, it’s raw, it’s organic and it’s exciting.
The 15 minute walk, or £3 taxi from Liverpool ONE is well worth it to experience the best examples of Liverpool’s creative industry. It’s the place for fun, alternative dining, partying and even more partying. Ever been to a late night garage rave? Head down to the Baltic and they’ll show you how it’s done. Expect to be boogying to an array of music in what was once an abandoned warehouse. It’s also probably the best place to Brunch, with a diverse range of cafes on offer. Check out the menu at Constellations for a fantastic British brunch. The jewel in the Baltic Triangle is the Camp and Furnace. Inside you’ll find open log fires, vintage caravans, bare bulbs, lobster and street food. Ranked second in The Times’ 20 Coolest Restaurants in Britain, It’s the place that you’ll want to tell all your friends about.
Just around the corner is where you’ll find Constellations, the urban garden, live music venue, exhibition space and studio. Timber meets flowers, street food and bar. You might be at Constellations for an arts fair, festival of exhibition or just for a drink.
Whatever the reason for your visit to Liverpool, if you want a real taste of creativity, head down to the Baltic.
