Everyone probably already knows about this – but it’s worth mentioning. Central Perk, the fake coffee shop from “Friends” will open for real starting September 17th. They will open in honor of the show’s 20th anniversary, as Warner Bros. and Eight O’Clock Coffee team up for the one-month project.
The pop-up shop will be at 199 Lafayette Street in Soho. They will be serving free java from 8 am to 8 pm on weekdays and 10 am to 8pm on weekends.
It will be an exact replica of the fake coffee shop where the Friends characters hung out for the 10-season run on NBC. There will be many promotions during the month and visitors will be able to buy “Friends” merchandise and enjoy in-store musical performances.
