Friend's Central Perk in real life
If you're a Friends fan (and who isn't, really?), then at some point you've probably daydreamed about what it would be like to sip coffee with your friends at Central Perk. Well, thanks to Eight O'Clock Coffee you can make that dream a reality! Eight O'Clock Coffee has teamed up with Warner Bros. Television Group and Warner Bros. Consumer Products to bring the Central Perk experience to life in celebration of the show's 20th anniversary.
The coffee shop will feature actual props from the show, including the iconic orange couch where fans can have their pics taken. There will even be an appearance by Gunther himself (actor James Michael Tyler) and an improv artist singing some of your favorite Phoebe songs, including the irresistible Smelly Cat. Visitors will also be able to enjoy a free cup 'o joe from 8AM - 8PM on weekdays and 10AM - 8PM on weekends. And, to round it all out, Eight O'Clock Coffee will have a limited edition Central Perk Roast available for purchase at the shop as well as in stores across the country.
The Central Perk pop-up shop will be located at 199 Lafayette Street for a very limited time (9/17/14 - 10/18/14), so be sure to visit if you're in the area!
In full disclosure this work was done by our agency, but in all fairness we worked our butts off on it, are a little biased about it's awesomeness, and couldn't wait to share it with you all! Hope you enjoy!
