Central Perk in Beijing

I am pretty sure you've heard of the show Friends and if you are a big fan just like myself, you would probably enjoy the fact that the actual cafe Central Perk was recreated in Beijing. Yes, the owner, who is hugely obsessed with the show (he also bleached his hair and goes by the name Gunther) opened and successfully copied the set of where the six characters created unforgettable lines we will remember forever.
But beware. When you order a coffee or a famous stolen cheesecake, don't be surprise by the flawed service. I've heard the waitress is not so good.. well, neither was Rachel.

P.S. Do you have a favorite quote from the coffee shop? Mine was definitely the one with over sized cups. Yup. That one.

  1. LOVE IT ! Friends will always be my favorite show ever ... now I have to go to Beijing with Lenka and Kate so we can live just like MOnica, Rachel and Phoebe !!!!!


  2. Oh Gosh, we should do the same here in Colorado, can you imagine how many people would actually come in?? Friends are my favorite show of all times and there is no way I would be able to pick a favorite line... :)
