Look Inside Central Perk, Where Friends Becomes Reality

New, 4 comments

Tomorrow one of the most anticipated pop-ups of September/October will throw open its doors in Soho, and invite visitors into an (almost) exact replica of Central Perk, the coffeehouse familiar to anyone who has watched even one episode of Friends. Eater got a sneak peek inside the pop-up, which will offer free coffee and a chance to sit on the actual orange couch from the show, plus contests and live performances, and even the occasional appearance by Gunther, the barista. So now, without further ado, take a look around:

The pop-up will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays, and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekends. For the most part it will just be offering free coffee and the chance to take selfies on the couch, but on Friday nights there will be live performances by local artists (along the lines of Phoebe's performances, although expect these ones to actually be good). It opens to the public tomorrow, and will be open every day until October 18. Expect a crowd of 20 and 30-somethings looking to relive the 90s.
