10 reasons why the Baltic Triangle has still got it

The Baltic Triangle is hands down one of the coolest areas in Liverpool.

The Baltic Triangle is consistently being ranked as one of the trendiest places to live, and with everything that they have in the area, it’s not hard to see why. 

With everything from great bars and restaurants, to vibrant street art and phenomenal performances spaces, the Baltic Triangle has so much to offer locals and tourists.

From sipping city made beer at the amazing Love Lane Brewery, shopping vintage at the brand new Red Brick Market, listening to live music at Punch Tarmeys, immersing yourself into the world of Peaky Blinders at its official Liverpool home, The Peaky Blinder Bar, or taking on one of the coolest crazy golf experiences in the UK at Golf Fang – there really is something for everyone down the Baltic!

Check out these ten reasons why we think the Baltic has still got it…

Botanical Gin Garden 

Baltic Triangle

A cool friendly outdoor bar that opens for 6 months of the year. It is the perfect place to relax in the sun and get yourself some great drinks. They sell other things other than gin but they do love fresh tasting juniper filled drinks, whether its in a slush or a tin can. 

They always have great small food vendors making fast beautiful and fresh food, they try to change it up but always have someone around!

Bongos Bingo

Bongo’s isn’t your typical night out. They’ve come such a long way from a humble idea to revamp a nan-tastic game of luck. Now they’re entertaining the masses around the globe, but don’t forget… it all started here in Liverpool!

The guy who made it all happen, the master of ceremonies, Johnny Bongo has become one of the city’s best loved characters. You’ll laugh til you cry at some of the most random moments that happen weekly at Bongo’s Bingo. From the dancers terrorising a false call to fellas dancing with 10ft rubber ducks. Prepare to have sore ribs the next day.

Street Art

Liverpool is overflowing with street art and culture, and the Baltic Triangle has become a hub for just that. From Paul Curtis’ iconic “For All The Liver Birds”, and his Abbey Road Crossing outside Cain’s Brewery Village, to Akse mural of LFC manager Jurgen Klopp. 

You can also check out Akse’s mural of Stephen Hawking with the iconic quote “However difficult life may seem there is always something you can do and succeed at”. The art is inspiring to see how much talent this city has and attracts to it. 

Camp & Furnace 

It might be one of Liverpool’s best loved night-time venues. Camp and Furnace has now opened its doors for a fantastic array of daytime offerings, becoming the new hang out for Baltic workers and visitors to the area. Think great food, chilled vibes, and the best music. 

Camp & Furnace host some incredible live music events, and this year the world’s biggest Eurovision fan club, EuroClub will host Liverpool’s official Eurovision party at the venue!

Forget your current perception of Chinese food and think exquisite, freshly prepared dishes, influenced by the changing seasons and the authentic tastes of the Tianjin region. The food at Lu Ban is light and bursting with authentic flavours. 

They have an incredible bottomless brunch where you can get boss dim sum and Lu Bans incredible main dishes along side bottomless Prosecco and cocktails!

Cains Brewery

Did you know that Robert Cain became one of Liverpool’s most successful businessmen? His company, Robert Cain and Sons, owned more than 200 pubs in Liverpool, and Cain expanded the brewery several times, between 1900–1902 when the landmark redbrick part of the brewery was constructed.  

Now reopened and relaunched, there are four bars set across three floors right where the original ale was brewed. There’s a huge glass wall so people can see the famous beer being created and, as well as Cains, there’s a selection of craft ales curated by its manager and head brewer, along with a menu of cocktails – or hoptails!

Depending on how many pints you can sink in an hour-and-a-half, you can now raise a glass or two (or three) to one of Liverpool’s oldest and best-loved breweries now that Cains do a Bottomless Brewery Tour at its Stanhope Street base.

Baltic Market

The Baltic Market is a permanent space for independent city businesses to set up shop and sell their wares. It’s not just about street food either, with a whole programme of social events from cult film nights to flea markets, live music and farmers markets, there’s a bite, a drink, a jam and a knick knack for every taste. 

The brainchild of Independent Liverpool, Baltic Market has become the hottest destination for socialising in Liverpool, the queues outside during the weekends is testament to that!

Manifest restaurant in the Baltic Triangle has had an incredible reaction from diners and critics since it opened in March 2022. Owners and partners Paul Durand and his wife Charlotte have set about creating somewhere very special, that makes the most of a Michelin-star background in a way that never feels intimidating.

Paul and Charlotte wanted to use all the things they’ve learned over the years working in high-end restaurants but put them in an informal relaxed setting. They really want anyone and everyone to feel they can come and enjoy themselves. The food might be fine dining quality, but the atmosphere is very casual – there’s no dress code, no airs and graces.

The Baltic Hotel

The first hotel ever in Liverpool’s thriving Baltic Triangle. It’s a place where punk art meets urban chic and traditional hip joins synonymously with effortless cool. 

Every one of the 58 rooms will deliver an eccentric, unique feel with music memorabilia adorning the walls and luxurious lounge areas. Peloton bikes have also been installed in some spaces while others boast stellar views over the city and River Mersey.

They do a banging roast on Sunday’s too. On the sharing platter you can choose two cuts of meat (ribeye beef joint, spatchcock chicken, roast lamb leg, or for veggies a nut roast Wellington) and get all the trimmings like roasties, carrot and swede mash, cabbage, stuffing, gravy, and MORE!

With three huge floors of gaming, ArCains is the perfect date night destination! Get on the dane machine, take on hordes of zombies on the Walking Dead, or beat your mates across the finish line in the ultimate Mario Kart tournament! 

It is joined on to Punch Tarmey’s so you can always pop next door for a pint and scran when you need a break.
