STORY & PHOTOS

“Friends” is one of the most beloved TV shows of all time, and if you’re a big fan you’d probably do anything to hang out at Central Perk with Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Joey, and Phoebe.

Unfortunately, there’s no real Central Perk coffee shop in New York City, but here’s the good news: you can still totally check out the Central Perk set and even sit on the famous orange couch.

The Central Perk set has been carefully maintained in the prop house at Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, CA, where “Friends” filmed during its 10-season run. It’s set up almost exactly to scale and when you walk in and see it you may become giddy with excitement. It’s so cool to see it exactly as you remember it, and especially cool to be able to sit on the orange couch and take a photo!

So how do you get into Central Perk? It’s usually a stop on the Warner Brothers VIP Studio Tour — I can’t guarantee anything, but I’ve taken the tour at least 10 times and I’ve been able to visit Central Perk every time. Pro tip: if you take the more expensive (but totally worth it) Deluxe Tour, you may have more freedom to wander around and grab a few more photo ops in your favorite fantasy hang. The WB tour guides are really great and happy to help you make some memories in one of the most iconic TV sets ever! I highly recommend this tour — if you’re a big “Friends” fan it’s totally worth it just for Central Perk, but there are a ton of other things you’ll love about the tour, too.
