Bar & Restaurant
The future of sustainable retail is coming to London’s West End and it’s the first of its kind. The formerly underused Bird Street will trial next-generation technology – dubbing it UK’s first 'Smart Street'. You'll experience first-hand the future of retail, where electricity is powered by pedestrian movement and Airlite paint purifies the air around you. Centrally located off Oxford Street – one of the busiest shopping destinations in Europe – Bird Street is a place of calm away from the storm, showcasing unique technology, music, fashion and lifestyle brands.
We’re currently looking for a slick food and beverage concept (serving coffee is a must) to take over this space and bring in repeat customers. If you’re sustainable and ethical, that’s even better. Your space comes fitted with sinks, counter tops, a hot water supply, lighting and heating. There’ll be seating areas along Bird Street so it’s set to be a go-to place to shop, have lunch, grab a coffee and unwind. It’s grassy and pedestrianised, and the spaces are designed to look like origami birds – so it will draw a lot of attention throughout the day.
Between Selfridges, Reiss and Gap, you’ll set up shop among a mix of diverse and renowned brands. Getting around is best by foot. Marble Arch, Bond Street and Oxford Circus underground stations are a few minutes’ walk.
