Could this be any more awesome? A new listing on Booking.com is inviting two friends to live out their ultimate Central Perk fantasy with a sleepover at Monica and Rachel’s iconic New York City apartment. Offered as part of The FRIENDS Experience, in collaboration with Superfly X, the deal honours the 25th anniversary of the classic 90s sitcom and it has all the trimmings included.
The immersive two-storey apartment comes with interactive experiences, including authentic set recreations, costumes, merchandise and original props. During your two-night stay, you can slide your way through the signature purple door, recline on Joey and Chandler’s famous La-Z Boys and even strap yourself into Chandler’s bunny suit.
According to the official listing, guests will score dinner and drinks, a late-night game of Phoebe’s Cab Escape Room, and a themed scavenger hunt, before waking up to coffee and breakfast at Central Perk – just like the gang would. Even better, there is a private tour with a photographer on hand to capture your stay as you relive all the best moments from the famed sitcom (PIVOT!).
While the actual apartment from the show was merely a set, the FRIENDS Experience is a pretty faithful rendition. In the sitcom, the cast lived in New York’s Greenwich Village neighbourhood in downtown Manhattan, and with the 130 East 23rd Street at the corner of Lexington Avenue address, you can view the actual exterior that was shot in the series at 90 Bedford Street.
Best of all, the offer is ridiculously cheap. The FRIENDS Experience is available to book for a one-night overnight stay for just USD$19.94, in honour of the year the show premiered, for a limited time. The bookings open on Friday, May 21st, 2021 but there is only a limited amount. If you are looking for a reason to go ‘on a break’ this might be it.
