There’s a Central Perk replica and it is EXACTLY like the original

Friends fans should probably brace themselves because there is exciting news for all of us.

A café has been created that is an actual replica of the Central Perk. They even have the orange couch, lads. 

The Central Perk café in Liverpool is pretty much as amazing as the one from the beloved sitcom, except there's always a queue for THAT couch.

That doesn’t really matter though because everything else is pretty on point. From the light fixtures to the red brick walls the place was designed to make people feel like they are on the actual set of the show.

While Friends may have come to an end in 2004, Gunther has seen something of a renaissance as according to the website, this Central Perk comes with its very own Gunther.

This is the first time a full-scale replica of the coffee house has been created in the UK, aside from a one-off pop-up in London a while back. This is much more impressive though, mostly because it is there to stay!

Another bonus; they have open mic nights, and Smelly Cat merchandise. Some night they promise to even play back to back episodes of the sitcom.

Oh, and they do a ‘Gunther’s birthday surprise’ offer. So if it’s your birthday then you get a free coffee.

There is also a script signed by the cast from The One With The Red Sweater, as well as the blackboard.

Remember how excited Rachel was about writing on the specials board? That’s how excited all the Friends fans feel about this coffee shop.

 Ok, so it is in Liverpool but that is so much closer than New York, it’s much more doable.

Weekend away anyone?
