Painstakingly true to the original (including that orange sofa), the cafe will offer fashion-loving Friends fans an oasis of nostalgia during their day at the shops, as well as a great place to relax and enjoy a drink... and hopefully the same drink as the one they ordered!
During the show’s run, Central Perk played host to many of the show’s standout moments and most famous scenes, from Rachel’s entrance in the very first episode, to Joey’s admission to Ross that he’s in love with Rachel ! The show attained huge popularity in the UK, and the effort spent on making it authentic is sure to be a huge hit with fans as well as a massive draw for Primark.
The cafe is easy to access, with Primark’s central location on Manchester’s busy Market Street making it an enticing place to drift into during a busy shopping day, or when the weather takes a turn! In addition to coffee, there’s a New York-inspired menu and branded merchandise on offer. It’s also sure to provide a tourism boost for Manchester (not everywhere has a Central Perk, and not everyone can afford New York!), becoming yet another outstanding feature of the city’s thriving city centre.
In addition, Primark are offering only environmentally friendly compostable cups for takeout, in addition to the gigantic mugs traditionally seen on the show, and the coffee served will all be ethically sourced - it’s great to see the clothing giant bringing responsibility in with the nostalgia. So hey - gather up your friends and head over to Manchester now to get in on the action, we promise your response will be Oh - My - God!!
