Take a trip down memory lane with new coffee house Central Perk

Nearly 10 years after Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe and Joey visited infamous coffee house Central Perk for the last time, Warner Bros has resurrected it for UK consumers, down to the last cup.


In preparation for next year’s 20th anniversary of the start of 'Friends', two Central Perks have popped up in Liverpool and Chester.

They serve fresh food and take-away coffee, and they even have 'Friends'-branded paper cups as souvenirs. If that wasn’t enough, customers can watch live acts play acoustic sets, just where Phoebe used to sing 'Smelly cat'.

Client: Paul Bufton, general manager, Warner Bros.

Licensing partner: KAR
