On Saturday, the boys, my Mum and I all spent the afternoon at Cains Brewery Village and a great day was had by all of us! I had only been once before just to the Baltic Market, and that was at the end of a session of Bongo’s Bingo so all I could really remember was the Halloumi Fries but there is so much more to discover there!
For those of you that don’t know, the Cains Brewery Village is in the heart of Liverpool’s buzzing Baltic triangle and sits in the old Cains brewery building. Inside you will find a host of Independent venues from bars and coffee shops to crazy golf and eateries. We arrived at around 2 o clock and the place was alive with couples, students and families. The place has a real chilled out vibe and everyone is welcome, even doggies! After spending the afternoon there, here are our favourite picks of things to do around the village.
Eat at the Baltic Market
The Baltic market is Liverpool’s first ever street food market and it obviously goes without saying but you are in for some real treats here…. From the home of halloumi fries ‘Hafla Hafla’ to ‘De La Seoul’ which serves Korean wings, Bibimbap bowls, bao buns and so much more, you’re going to be spoilt for choice.
Have a drink in a yellow submarine
Yes really! This amazing Beatles Inspired Bar opened last year in the Baltic village and really is based inside a yellow submarine! For years, the submarine was used as a floating hotel on the Albert Dock but now is Liverpool’s only yellow submarine bar. This retro bar is full of Beatles memorabilia so its definitely one to visit!
Visit the Hippie Chic Tipis
This is Liverpool’s very own taste of ‘Glasto’ with this three tier tipi tent in the heart of the village, also described as a ‘disco hippie tent’. Inside, the bar is decorated with flower walls and fairy lights and you’ll find live music playing here most weekends. There is even a VIP pod for hire which includes its own music system allowing guests to play any music of their choice. This is defiantly one for the bucket list!
Get a picture at the famous Abby Road Mural
Local artist Paul Curtis, otherwise known as ‘Liverpool Banksy’ was commissioned by The Beatles Story to create this amazing mural to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the album ‘Abby Road’. The mural has become somewhat of a phenomenon in Liverpool so make sure you get some pics as this is one you need on your Instagram grid…
Have a mooch around Red Brick Vintage
Red Brick Vintage is the new Camden Style market in the heart of the Baltic Triangle and is a shopping experience like no other in the City with a mixture of clothes, furniture and food stalls. We fell in love with the cakes on offer at the ‘Nakery’, the white chocolate and caramel bites were to die for!
Despite spending more than 4 hours here, we still didn’t get around all that there is to offer… so you know where to find me next weekend!
