Central Perk (Friends)
Though they were supposedly broke, the cast of Friends
always had money to spend at Central Perk, their neighborhood coffee house. Crowded together on the orange velvet couch, constantly mocked by manager/barista Gunther, Monica, Chandler, Ross, Rachel, Joey and Phoebe found time between love crises to hang out at this Greenwich Village staple, where spoiled princess Rachel struggled to learn the ropes of waitressing. Memorably, Phoebe performed her original song “Smelly Cat” during open mic night at Central Perk… and our ears will never be the same.
