An Interactive 'Friends' Pop-Up Bar Coming to Chicago


If you love the tv show 'Friends,' you can soon experience an interactive 'Friends'-themed pop-up bar in Chicago:

Originally conceived by Warner Bros and the exhibition company Superfly X as a tribute to the show's 25th anniversary, The Friends Experience is part exhibit, part set recreation, focusing on memories from throughout the sitcom's storied history. Visitors will have a chance to roam around the pop-up's 12 rooms, take photos and check out iconic show memorabilia like Rachel and Monica's purple door, a reconstruction of Central Perk (orange couch and all) and tons of other nostalgic highlights—there's even a glass case dedicated to the evolution of Rachel's haircuts. Once you've had your fill of photo ops and Friends-related trivia, you can visit the pop-up's gift shop full of exclusive show-themed swag. And as for COVID-era safety precautions, expect social distancing and mask requirements in addition to temperature checks; the exhibit will also be routinely cleaned and sanitized. 

Tickets for the Friends Experience at 540 N Michigan Avenue, which runs from October 1 through January 3, go on sale for $35 on September 2. In the meantime, take a sneak peak at the pop-up below. 

Cool! Have fun!
