Who didn't want to sink in the comfy sofas and sip on the (probably great) coffee at Central Perk in Friends? The characters from the 90s sitcom spent literally half of their lives in the café and we don't blame them.
Well now, you can channel your best NYC life as a Friends-themed café is coming to Manchester in Primark.
And it opens on Wednesday, 12th June. YES.
Opening in the Market Street mega store, Primark shoppers will be able to sit in their very own Central Perk café branded with Friends memorabilia, including a replica of the iconic orange sofa the gang sat on.
The new café will come with New York-inspired drinks and giant coffee cups, as well as limited edition branded products available to purchase exclusively in the Manchester branch of Primark.
It will also be totally sustainable, with bosses promising the café will use ethically-sourced coffee beans and compostable cups.
Tim Kelly, Primark's director of new business development, said: "We are hugely excited to be bringing the first branded Central Perk Café in fashion retail in the UK to the British high street."
He added: "Customers can relax and have fun there whilst also enjoying our amazing fashion at amazing prices in our Manchester store."
The café is opening in partnership with Warner Bros. in honour of the show's 25th anniversary.
Just two months ago, Primark opened its biggest store in Birmingham, overtaking Manchester in terms of size.
The new Primark featured a Disney café upon opening, complete with a Mickey and Minnie Mouse-themed interior.
There was also a Harry Potter area where budding witches and wizards could pick up the latest Primark collections, including satchels and Hogwarts house-themed t-shirts, as well as a beauty studio where customers could get treatments.
Manchester Primark's new Central Perk Café opens on Wednesday, 12th June. Race you there.
