Recently we proposed a universal solvable irrelevant deformation of AdS3/CFT2 duality, which leads in the ultraviolet to a theory with a Hagedorn entropy [1]. In this note we provide a worldsheet description of this theory as a coset CFT, and compare its spectrum to the field theory predictions of [2, 3].
