Stop everything! There is going to be a REAL Friends café!


This may be the most exciting news since…ever!

Warner Bros have announced that they will be setting up a replica of the iconic Friends café, Central Perk!

And where will Central Perk be located? Why, NYC of course! Central Perk will be set up at 199 Lafayette Street in the SoHo area of the city. 

For Friends fans out there (basically, everyone ever) this will be the chance of a lifetime to actually drink coffee in Central Perk which will be complete with an orange couch and, wait for it, GUNTHER!

That’s right, Gunther, played by James Michael Taylor, will be making some appearances at the coffee shop for fans.

This pop-up recreation of Central Perk is all part of the upcoming celebrations for the 20th Anniversary of the very first episode of Friends on the 22nd of September. 20. Years. We feel so old right now!

Central Perk will open on the 17th September and stay open until 18th October.

It hasn't been said yet whether the famous Friends group will make any appearances at their old haunt yet, but we can always hope…

Is it time to book those flights stateside now? Oh, we think so!
