Central Perk is coming to Boston!

  • Fans of Friends, Central Perk is coming to Boston!
  • A new coffeehouse inspired by the iconic location from the sitcom is set to open an official location this October in Boston.
  • “Nestled within a Newbury Street brownstone, this remarkable coffeehouse, inspired by the legendary Friends hang-out, is poised to become a landmark destination where cherished memories, extraordinary coffee and food converge,” per a press release.
  • The announcement also shared that Top Chef host and James Beard Award Winner Tom Colicchio was brought on to help refine the menu.
  • According to Joe Gurdock, President of Central Perk Coffee Co, the goal was to make the coffeehouse feel like an updated version of what the show’s coffee shop would look like now. The location will feature two outdoor patios and a streetside parklet, as well as a cozy Orange Sofa room inspired by the iconic Central Perk couch.
