The space will host live music performances and unplugged sessions with singers, DJs and musicians each weekend starting tomorrow (13 February) until 10 April.

Performers set to appear include Charlie Salvidge of Toy, Weights and Chains, Florence + The Machine’s Chris Hayden and Digby, meanwhile the likes of DeLooze and Coves will deliver acoustic sets.

The pop-up will also host events for Record Store Day on 16 April, its final day of business.

In a bid to offer guests an independent coffee shop experience, the space serves coffee by Allpress and a menu comprising locally sourced food. It also houses a selection of records, which are available to purchase. 

The activity is a reflection of Lion Coffee & Records' roots – it was founded by music manager and record label owner Mairead Nash along with Florence + the Machine drummer, Hayden, after they sought to create a platform for the capital's emerging music talent.

A number of high street retailers have opted to host pop-ups within their flagship stores on Oxford Street, including Urban Outfitters, who teamed up with Adidas to showcase the brand's new collection last year, meanwhile Topshop unveiled a Twitter-powered vending machine in May.
