In a special report, we've spoken to those who helped turn the Baltic from a backwater into a destination namechecked by the Rough Guide as "uber-arty" and described by the national media as among the coolest places in Britain. In 2004 the forgotten area was almost earmarked as a red light district. But soon, artists and creatives moved in and the area began a new lease of life.

Tucked away on Jamaica Street in the Baltic Triangle is Hobo Kiosk. Many will remember it as a quirky store selling eccentric furniture and decorative pieces. But now, the historic warehouse is set to become a pub as owners Delia and Tristan convert the "cabinet of curiosities" into a place where everyone will be welcome to spin a yarn, stare in awe at the decor and share stories and music. Offering something completely different from the usual haunts of Liverpool City Centre bars and pubs, Hobo Kiosk truly represents its name as a hobo venue.
