Images have been released from inside the Baltic Triangle’s first ever hotel after the developer invested over £7m in the project.
The Baltic Hotel is set to open on July 21 – just days after the Government’s proposed ending of all restrictions – with the 58-room facility offering “a place where punk art meets urban chic and traditional hip joins synonymously with effortless cool”.
According to developer Town Hotels, the hotel will have music memorabilia adorning the room walls and lounge areas, with Peloton bikes installed in some areas, with views out over the city and River Mersey.
Situated in a former factory and warehouse, the owners said they 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 London offerings, and the second is a Shoreditch-style restaurant called The Baltic Brasserie.
Town Hotels, which acts as the hospitality division of Merseyside-based property development company Living Brick, built The Baltic Hotel throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, and said it was always confident the city would bounce back and visitors return.
Manager Duncan Stewart said: “We’re incredibly proud and excited to be opening the first hotel ever in Liverpool’s vibrant Baltic Triangle
“Our Duck & Swagger is a place for great beer while The Baltic Brasserie will serve incredible food and both venues are there for people to just chill and socialise.
“The Baltic Hotel really is a destination in its own right and we feel the food and drink facilities compliment the location.
“The development will feature many of the building’s original features with a modern twist and is another example of our belief Liverpool will become the go-to city once again as Covid-19 restrictions are lifted entirely.

“We’ve spent more than £11m on The Baltic Hotel and our recently completed Duke Street Boutique Apartments. They will both add to our already established serviced apartment portfolio which includes York Street Studios and Chavasse Apartments in the city centre.
“We’ve worked with a brilliant team throughout the pandemic to get the new hotel ready and we are expecting an incredible summer as people start returning to the city with lockdown restrictions lifted completely.”
