Previously, we mentioned that we'd be getting a FRIENDS-themed café soon. Well, it's official: Central Perk Singapore will open its doors on November 24 at Central Mall (how apt). The new café will house multiple sets modelled after the sitcom, the main one being Central Perk, the cosy coffee shop with a plush couch on which Monica, Rachel, Joey, Chandler, Phoebe and Ross would spend all their time. Iconic furniture from the show, such as the Pacman machine, Monica's kitchen and Joey's handcrafted cabinet, will be on display in the 3,300-square-foot space.
The café will serve dishes inspired by the show – think cheesecake from Mama's Little Bakery, which fans will recognise as the cheesecake so good Rachel and Chandler ate it off the floor. There'll also be the Joey Special – a meal made of two pizzas – and the Moist Maker, which is reminiscent of Ross' Thanksgiving sandwich. Central Perk Singapore will also sell a range of merchandise like mugs, caps and t-shirts.
Lim Jit Min is a superfan of the sitcom and the brains behind the project. The 28-year-old raised money to open the café through Indiegogo, where he garnered more than 4,000 pledges and raised over $5,000. Check the Central Perk Singapore Facebook page for updates.
