In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the TV show FRIENDS, a pop up replica of the Central Perk coffee shop opened in Capitol Hill Sunday inside The Lounge by AT&T at Harvard and Thomas. It’s open seven days a week.
The Seattle "Central Perk" will stay open through the holidays so plan your selfies accordingly:
The pop-up includes a version of the show’s iconic orange couch where the cast often sat.
There’s also a corner of the coffee shop with a microphone and guitar, in honor of Phoebe’s Central Perk performances

Customers can test their knowledge of the show with digital trivia, or flip through a giant digital timeline of episodes. You can see different episodes, see what happened on those episodes and play short clips.
The drink menu also features episodic language – for example, drip coffee is called “We Were On A Break.”
There’s also a life-size replica of the door to Monica/Rachel/Chandler’s apartment.
An array of Friends merch – including a hat featuring the phrase “You’re My Lobster” – is also for sale.
