As more Americans are looking to travel as our world opens back up, there’s no better place to visit than the apartment your favorite fictional “friends” once lived in. In honor of the 25th anniversary of this iconic 90s sitcom, Booking.com wants you to have a sleepover with your best friend and live among the nostalgic set for one night.
To amp up the nostalgia, the immersive two-story apartment is complete with interactive experiences, including set recreations, original props, costumes, limited-edition merchandise and more. Booking.com is offering two, one-night stays exclusively on Booking.com.
Fans of the show will be able to recreate their own scenes, if they wish, with Monica and Rachel’s iconic purple door, Chandler and Joey’s recliners, foosball and Ross’ infamous sofa (pivot!). There will even be costumes there, including Rachel’s famous cow jacket and Chandler’s bunny suit. Guests will experience many more nostalgic surprises should they snag a coveted booking.
Guests will be treated to dinner and drinks, a late-night game of Phoebe’s Cab Escape Room, a Friends-themed scavenger hunt, as well as a custom tour of the home.
There is a private bedroom which you can retreat to once you’ve had your full Friends fix. In the morning, enjoy coffee at Central Perk, just like your favorite crew, complete with the orange couch and coffee shop props.
A private photographer will be on-hand to capture your stay with professional imagery so you can remember reliving all of the iconic moments. The best part? Each stay is just $19.94 per night, in honor of the year the show premiered.
There’s no better offer, or epic sleepover opportunity, than this nostalgia-packed experience focused on 90s most famous TV show.
The FRIENDS Experience is available year-round for tours, in both the flagship New York and Chicago locations. In New York, Central Perk coffee shop is also open daily to the public, with treats inspired by Friends characters, sourced from local Breads Bakery and BCakeNY.
The FRIENDS Experience is located in Manhattan’s Gramercy neighborhood at 130 East 23rd Street at the corner of Lexington Avenue. In the show, the Friends cast lived in New York’s Greenwich Village neighborhood in downtown Manhattan, and you can view the actual exterior that was shot in the series at 90 Bedford Street.
Not only does this offer celebrate the 25th anniversary of the show, but the Friends reunion will air on HBO Max on May 27. The unscripted reunion will include the original cast, as well as iconic guest stars. It is a real-life unscripted celebration of the TV series, which was originally shot in a Warner Bros. Studio in Burbank, California.
Booking opens on Friday, May 21 at 10a EST and overnight stays will be offered soon after on Sunday, May 23 and Monday, May 24. Book here when it opens.
