'The One with the Free Coffee' — Real 'Friends' Coffee Shop Coming to NYC


In case that Friends reunion on Jimmy Kimmel left you feeling a little ho-hum, you may soon get a chance to bum around at 11 am on a workday on the actual big orange couch from the show, thanks to the upcoming Central Perk pop-up in New York City.

In honor of the upcoming Friends 20th anniversary, Warner Bros. has partnered with Eight O'Clock Coffee to bring an actual pop-up replica of Central Perk to Manhattan. The shop will come complete with themed decor, bizarre folk musical performances a la Smelly Cat, and, as we mentioned, chances to take #SofaSelfies on the same plush orange couch the "Friends" sat on.



Speaking of, Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey, and Phoebe have not been scheduled to make appearances, but there will be free "Central Perk Roast" coffee on hand and chances to win Friends merchandise, which is kind of or in other words nowhere near as nice.

Central Perk will run from September 17 through October 18, Monday - Friday from 8 am to 8 pm and weekends from 10 am to 8 pm.
