The signature orange couch from the Friends TV comedy show has arrived in Dubai and will remain for a month as part of 25th anniversary celebrations.
Warner Bros US is presenting the Central Perk Café at two locations - first by the Waterfall Atrium in The Dubai Mall and later outdoors on a floatie on The Dubai Fountain against the backdrop of Burj Khalifa where it will stay from September 22 for a month.
The show, which starred stared Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer, ran for 236 episodes across 10 seasons on the NBC network and recounted the lives of six friends living in Manhattan.
Fans of Friends will have the perfect backdrop for their next selfie as the Friends Central Perk Cafe set will also include the red rug, coffee table and other accessories as well as the couch.
Burj Khalifa will come to life with a specially themed Friends LED show at 8.30pm and again at 9.30pm from September 22. The signature theme song – I’ll Be There for You by the American duo The Rembrandts - will also be choreographed for a performance on The Dubai Fountain.
Other landmarks such as the Empire State Building, The London Eye, and Madrid Royal Palace will also welcome the Central Perk Café as part of the global celebrations.
