Friends coffee shop Central Perk to open in New York complete with Gunther and orange couch
Could I be indulging in any more nostalgia?
The return of Rachel, Monica and Phoebe in a Jimmy Kimmel skit has now been compounded by more Friends nostalgia, with the iconic Central Perk café set to open in Manhattan next month.
Warner Bros has confirmed that a pop-up replica will open on 199 Lafayette Street in the SoHo neighbourhood for a month between 17 September and 18 October to celebrate the sitcom's 20th anniversary.
The coffee shop served as the setting for so many memorable scenes, including Joey revealing his crush on Rachel to Ross ("Rachel?!"), the arrival of Russ, and Mike's invisible piano playing.Costumes and props from the show will be on display
Customers will be able to sip (free!) coffee on the classic orange couch and check out other props from the show, while James Michael Tyler will be there, who played Central Perk's manager Gunther.
Its opening will follow a media preview on 15 to 16 September, with queues expected to be around the block.
Comedy Central will celebrate the show's 22 September anniversary in the UK, showing the nation's favourite episodes as voted by viewers.
