Get ready to live out your favorite 90s T.V. moments at the ‘Friends’ Central Perk pop-up!
OG and newer fans alike can celebrate the 25th anniversary of the infamous television series “Friends” at a real-life Central Perk this week at not one, but two different locations in the city! Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf have transformed their 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica and Beverly Boulevard in West Hollywood locations into the iconic java spot so Angelenos could create their own special moments with friends.
Aside from snapping a few pics on the classic orange couch, fans get to enjoy drinks inspired by the sitcom’s six characters: The Rachel Matcha Latte, The Joey Mango Cold Brew Tea, The Chandler Caramel Coconut Latte, The Ross Classic Flat White, The Monica Midnight Mocha Cold Brew and The Phoebe Cookies and Cream Ice Blended!
Head over to the photo booth or snag some cool merch like the novelty mugs reading “We Were On A Coffee Break” and “How You Brewin’.” If you don’t feel like spending money on memorabilia, you can always save the special Central Perk sleeve your drink comes in.
The pop-up will be around for one week only, serving up nostalgia August 16 through 23 from 8a to 8p daily.
