To help launch the new Mumford and Sons album Babel in Australia a pop up bar called The Mumford & Sons General Store & Saloon is set to open up somewhere in Sydney. Details are vague at the moment but we do know a couple of things.

By day The Mumford & Sons General Store & Saloon will be broadcasting Babel ahead of its release on the 21st September and serving Grinders coffee.

By night that coffee turns to ARDBEG whisky and The Mumford & Sons General Store & Saloon will showcase live music “from the band’s favourite locals” and screenings of their DVD Big Easy Express.

The Mumford & Sons General Store & Saloon will be open to the public daily at 10am from Friday 14th September until Friday 28th September. Details on the location and the lineup of acts set to play in the evenings haven’t been released yet but you can be sure as soon as they are you’ll be the first to know.

    We’re not sure whether this idea’s come from UK outfit Mumford & Sons, the team at Universal Music Australia, local production company Under New Management or a combination of all three, but we absolutely love the concept. Mumford & Sons will set up shop in Sydney from Friday next week with the Mumford & Sons General Store. By day, the venue will allow punters to hear the brand new Mumford & Sons album ‘Babel’ in full, while grabbing a coffee or relaxing in the surrounds. At nighttime, however, the space will transform into the ‘Saloon’, with whisky flights, live music and screenings of Mumford & Sons’ movie ‘Big Easy Express’. The sad news is that the store will be open for two weeks only (from 10am on Friday September 14 to close of trade on Friday September 28). Details on location are still forthcoming.
