We study a toy model of the Kerr/CFT correspondence using string theory on AdS_3 × S^3. We propose a single trace irrelevant deformation of the dual CFT generated by a vertex operator with spacetime dimensions (2,1). This operator shares the same quantum numbers as the integrable T\bar{J} deformation of two-dimensional CFTs where \bar{J} is a chiral U(1) current. We show that the deformation is marginal on the worldsheet and that the target spacetime is deformed to null warped AdS_3 upon dimensional reduction. We also calculate the spectrum of the deformed theory on the cylinder and compare it to the field theory analysis of T\bar{J}-deformed CFTs.
