The Baltic Triangle is a development area in Liverpool city centre. Liverpool City Council originally defined the area as being bounded by Liver Street, Park Lane, Parliament Street and Chaloner Street / Wapping. However, since the closure of Cains Brewery and its resurgence as Cains Brewery Village, Liverpool council have extended the Baltic Triangle area through to Hill Street.

The area is home to a growing number of creative and digital businesses, which sit alongside a range of independent food and drink traders; the Baltic's Camp and Furnace was named, in 2013, by the Times as one of the top 20 coolest restaurants in Britain.

There is much debate about the origin of the name, Baltic Triangle. It is believed it may be due to the area being the site of timber warehouses that stored wood imported from Norway. Other suggestions include that the area was home to a small but lucrative whaling industry and is named after the fishing grounds. The area is also home to the Gustav Adolf Scandinavian church. During the nineteenth century the area was settled by a large immigrant community especially from Ireland.
