Oh. My. God.
Just in case you missed everyone losing their sh*t over this, there is indeed a Friends-themed Central Perk pop-up café coming to Sydney for two weeks in October. This is not a drill, people.
Your favourite TV show (that finished 11 years ago, btw, welcome to feeing old) is launching on streaming service Stan, and they’re celebrating by plonking a Central Perk in Hyde Park. Fans are invited to pop in for a free cuppa and bask in the glory of the velvet couch and posting it on Insta like the cast never did.
What’s not to like? Sydney? Good. Coffee? Good. Selfies on the sofa? Good. Endless quotes? Goooooood.
So when the time comes… Don’t run, don’t walk. PIVOT. And get your heart-tattooed tush down there before it goes on a break. We can’t promise that Phoebe will be there singing “Smelly Cat”, or a grumpy Gunther serving coffee, but it will be packed with nostalgia and hopefully The Rembrandts on repeat.
