The Baltic’s Hidden Gems

Article Contents

Over the past few years, the Baltic Triangle has grown from a derelict industrial area to an amazing creative hub, home to hundreds of businesses.

There are some fantastic companies that have made it become a true Liverpool hot spot.  Day by day new businesses join the hub offering new experiences that add to the vibe here and, while you might know some of them, there are certainly some hidden gems that we have discovered.

So, join us we take a look at the businesses that we think deserve more kudos.

Hobo Kiosk

Hobo Kiosk, located 9 Bridgewater St, is a speakeasy bar that transports you to a different time and place. The décor is reminiscent of what it would look like inside an artist’s head. The bar has paintings, prints and sculptures which enhances the feeling of escapism you get when you visit the bar – as the Baltic Triangle puts it “If Narnia was down a flight of stairs in Liverpool, it would be HOBO Kiosk!”.

The bar is owned by Delia, a wonderful person who makes you feel welcome every time you take a step into her world (if you follow the bars rules). Her sidekick Tristan is responsible for all the amazing art pieces you see in the establishment and has also been a part of big art projects you see around the Baltic Triangle.

They host a quiz on a Wednesday night and If this interests you then make sure to contact them to book your space as they fill up quick.

This really is a cool place to be if you are looking for a nice quiet drink in a great atmosphere.

Dorothy

Dorothy, located 22 Jordan Street, is a creative studio that make prints, products and artwork that are sold and exhibited internationally.

With backgrounds in ad agencies, the owners took a leap of faith and started making prints back in 2010 and have been creating fantastic work ever since.

There is an impressive number of prints available from videogames to music. A lot of their prints are stylised to look like maps with pop culture references for example they have a map of the UK with songs related to different locations.  

You may have seen some of their work located around the Baltic Creative Digital House which adds perfectly to creative feel when you work into the building. Check them out and you will be spoilt for choice.

District

District is a multi-purpose venue, which can home gigs, club nights, screenings and other amazing events located on 61 Jordan St.

The space brings music and culture to the industrial area.  When the weather’s nice then they have a great outside space to get some air.

The venue has been apart of amazing festivals such as Positive Vibrations, Liverpool Psych Fest and Sound City.  It’s definitely a must go to place for a night out around the Baltic Triangle.

Farm Urban

Farm Urban is a social enterprise that grow fresh greens with hi-tech indoor equipment and their office space is based on Jamaica Street.  They created Liverpool’s first vertical farm in their underground farm facility and their campaign ‘Greens for Good’ brings healthy, fresh and locally grown greens to the local community.

As there isn’t much green space to grow plants and vegetables around the city centre, it’s amazing to see Farm Urban doing what they do.

They also go around schools, communities and businesses educating them the benefits of growing food in cities, and how we can create a sustainable future for food. 

When you get a chance see if you can spot their small garden around the Baltic Triangle.
