More than a decade after the series finale of Friends, a replica of the show's iconic Central Perk cafe is coming to Sydney's Hyde Park. Located on the corner of College and Liverpool Streets, the pop-up coffee shop complete with famous orange couch will be open for two weeks, selling merchandise, serving free coffee and providing ideal selfie opportunities for flocks of diehard fans.
The cafe is part of a promotion by streaming service Stan, who have just inked a deal with Warner Brothers to put all 236 episodes of the sitcom online in HD. That comes to roughly 86.5 hours of television, for anyone planning a marathon-length binge. The same pop-up attracted nearly 50,000 people when it appeared in New York last year. In Sydney it'll be open 8am to 5pm Sundays through Wednesdays and 8am to 7pm Thursdays through Saturdays.
