What to Expect at the Friends Experience

This is a pop-up exhibit that has set up shop in New York City, featuring set recreations, original props, costumes, and more.

The three main locations that have been recreated are Monica & Rachel’s apartment, Joey & Chandler’s apartment, and the Central Perk coffee shop.

If you want to see the interior of the Friends apartment or Central Perk, this is going to be pretty much the only way to do it without visiting the actual studio lot in Los Angeles.

This section will cover which attractions you can expect to see.

By the way, you’ll be allowed to take photos on each of the two floors of this exhibition!


The Orange Couch

If you’re familiar with Friends, you have undoubtedly seen this iconic couch many times on the show, as the group would gather around this area frequently.

You’ll find the couch in a recreation of the living room from the show, so it’ll look like you’re really on the set!

Guests will have an opportunity to take a selfie with their friends on the orange couch.


Monica & Rachel’s Kitchen Table

This is another area of the apartment recreation that will no doubt remind fans of many scenes throughout the series.

As with the couch, you can also grab a selfie at this location and immerse yourself in the experience of being in the same spot as your favorite characters.


Joey & Chandler’s Comfy Chairs

In addition to Monica & Rachel’s apartment, the Friends Experience also includes Joey & Chandler’s apartment.

One of the most memorable attractions you’ll find here is their comfy chairs.

If you’re visiting with a friend or partner, consider taking a photo sitting on the chairs!


Central Perk Coffee Shop

While the actual Central Perk doesn’t exist, the Friends Experience does a pretty good job of recreating the coffee shop.

You can get an idea of what it would be like to hang out at this popular location.

While they don’t offer any drinks or food, you can get authentic Central Perk merchandise from their online shop.


See Chandler’s Bunny Suit

If you’ve ever wanted to see some of the unique items worn by characters in Friends, this attraction includes a lot of wardrobe items including Chandler’s Bunny Suit.

While you might not be able to wear it, like everything else, you can of course take photos!


Find Rachel’s Cow Jacket

This is another wardrobe item that can be found at the Friends Experience, and it’s a great opportunity to talk about and remember your favorite episodes.

You’ll find many other notable props and wardrobe items here, so make sure to look around and see if you can spot everything!

If you’re also interested in seeing some of the locations in New York City that are related to the show, you might want to consider taking a Friends Tour.
