A Little About This Space

Old Street Station is the world’s first underground station dedicated to innovative retail and immersive brand experience. This quirky kiosk for rent is next to the turnstiles in the station, putting you in front of thousands of commuters every day. This space can be rented by the week or month. It comes with electricity, access to water, a storage cupboard, and a lightbox with a panel available for branding.

THE CROWD

Watch as Londoners break their daily commute with a bit of unexpected retail therapy. Old Street attracts a mixed crowd, from City workers to those working in what Wired magazine calls the “fastest-growing tech cluster” in Europe. They’re looking for quick and easy purchases – a good chance to offer commuters a quick pick-me-up or something to help kick-start their day. Peak travel times are between 8-10am and 5-8pm during the working week.

MEET THE NEIGHBOURS

You’re surrounded by the independent bookshop, Camden Lock Books, and fast food cafe, Nincomsoup. We’ve got more pop-up shops a few doors down, view our other spaces available in Old Street station here.

Home Truths

The station is a busy environment and new to this style of retail, which means the more exciting and innovative you are the more likely you are to make an impact. Consult with our Concierge team to make the most of appearing underground.

As it's underground, there are some conditions that are outside of the Landlord's control. It's recommended that stock is covered overnight to protect from dust blowing up from the tracks.

There is no water supply, but access to water is possible.

Old Street Underground Station

Beneath the streets of London’s tech capital and a short walk from the creative hub of Shoreditch lies a network of tracks and tunnels, shuttling tens of thousands of people every day to East London’s most vibrant destinations. This is Old Street Station: where the forward thinkers and tech trendsetters come to get inspiration and make things happen.

Appear Here have partnered with Transport for London to reinvent the station, switching shuttered, grimy spaces for exciting, white-boxed pop-up shops from brands like Adidas and Jamie Oliver to hundreds of other independent brands. This is no ordinary retail space, this is where the very best of above the ground is collected and curated underground.

Over 500 new ideas have appeared in the station, including Tate Gallery’s first pop-up, and a streetwear concept store which won Best Pop Up Shop at the Mapic Awards 2016. Even the top of the disused station roundabout was transformed into an open-air rooftop restaurant for Burger Bear. What was once a dull route to work is now one of London’s most innovative retail destinations.

New for 2018, we'll be launching our season of change campaign, uniting like-minded brands around a common cause. Contact our concierge team here to find out how to get involved.
