Things to do: ,

Buzzy coffee shop/cafe in the foyer of the area’s start-up office project, Baltic Creative. Fresh pastries, sandwiches, salads and specials, served with decent teas and coffees.

Take away service, too, should you be itching to get on your skateboard and throw some moves in the adjacent park. But this is a great place to meet and eat, fundamentally, and you never know who you might end up sat next to.

Baltic Creative is, as you’d expect, a vibrant hub of young digital, artist, marketing and website start ups. One of the more unique regeneration projects in the Baltic Triangle, the Baltic Creative Campus consists of a huge warehouse with garden shed-like structures inside, housing some of the city’s design studios, tech startups and culture organisations.

There’s a mega-shed space that’s good for pop-up exhibitions, gigs and conferences next door.
