The One Where Gunther From 'Friends' Takes Us On A Tour Of Central Perk
Ah, "Friends." The iconic sitcom debuted on September 22, 1994, and has held a place in our hearts -- and DVRs -- ever since. Every devotee of the show has at least once or twice dreamed of dropping by Central Perk, the coffee shop that served as a sort of second home for the saucy six-some, and grab a cup of joe with a side of snark from Gunther.
James Michael Tyler, the actor who portrayed the barista with hair "brighter than the sun," was the guest star to appear most on the show, ranking only behind the main cast in number of on-air appearances. He loved Rachel, and we loved him.
To celebrate the show's premiere reaching the two-decade mark, a recreation of Central Perk, containing the actual orange couch Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey and Ross lounged on so often, alongside artifacts from the show, will be temporarily open for business in New York City.
MTV News got the chance to stop by and check out Central Perk (located at 199 Lafayette in downtown New York) and get a tour from none other than Gunther himself. Want to see your favorite surly barista sing "Smelly Cat" while standing next to an actual box of Smelly Cat kitty litter? Look no further.
