The Baltic Hotel opens its doors in the Baltic Triangle

The Baltic Hotel has opened its doors following more than £7million worth of investment, the hotel is the first in Liverpool’s thriving Baltic Triangle

The new hotel was built throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and officially rolled out the red carpet and uncorked the champagne to celebrate doors opening just days after the government’s end of all restrictions.

Owners Town Hotels, led by managing director Kevin Doran and his business partner, say it is “a place where punk art meets urban chic and traditional hip joins synonymously with effortless cool”.

Every one of the 58 rooms delivers 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.

Completing the rooms are fully-stocked Marshall speaker mini-bars and interactive tablet controls. 

The Baltic Hotel, situated in a former factory and warehouse, is also blessed with two beautiful spaces and the owners have kept many of the original features in order “to show off pre-war architecture dressed in post-war modernism”.

One space is being transformed into the Duck & Swagger pub, with inspiration drawn from Guy Ritchie’s trendy London offerings, and the second is a laidback Shoreditch-style restaurant called The Baltic Brasserie – with both venues set to open later in 2021.

The new hotel will open up the entire Baltic Triangle to new Liverpool visitors and Town Hotels are aiming to offer a true staycation experience.

The Baltic Triangle was almost written off 14 years ago as little more than a wasteland and red light district. However, it is now one of Britain’s hippest destinations and the former industrial area has received another major shot in the arm with The Baltic Hotel opening its doors next month to make the district a true tourist destination.

Star DJs, drag queens, hosts, floral displays, canapes, drinks and a red carpet were all laid out for the exclusive opening event on Friday, July 23.

The Baltic Hotel owners had been waiting on the government to lift coronavirus restrictions in order to launch their new offering and said Friday night gave people the chance to “get their disco on and bid Covid-19 a final farewell” until 2am.

Operations director Duncan Stewart said:

“We’re incredibly excited to officially open The Baltic Hotel.

“Anyone visiting this summer, now restrictions are coming to an end, will be able to feel the pulse and energy The Baltic Hotel offers with live events and an eccentric, eclectic mix of high-end decoration.

“We’ve spent more than £11m on The Baltic Hotel and our recently completed Duke Street Boutique Apartments, working alongside a brilliant team throughout the pandemic in order to add to our already established serviced apartment portfolio which includes York Street Studios and Chavasse Apartments in the city centre.

“We are hoping for a truly incredible summer and are sure anyone who visits will not be disappointed by our unique offering.”
