It’s been 25 years since the world met Ross, Rachel, Joey, Monica, Chandler, and Phoebe in the hit 90s sitcom Friends. But it wasn’t just the characters who became iconic—the interiors portrayed throughout the show, Monica and Joey’s (completely unrealistic) apartments, and of course, Central Perk, became influential “characters” in their own right. To celebrate this year’s big anniversary, New Yorkers will have a chance to experience those interiors first-hand in a new, immersive pop-up featuring set recreations that will bring you right into the center of the Friends universe.

Sponsored by Superfly, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Warner Bros. Television Group, the “nostalgia-packed” installation will offer fans an opportunity to “stick a turkey on your head, peek through Rachel and Monica’s purple door, relax on Chandler and Joey’s recliner after playing some foosball, or help Ross with the infamous sofa pivot,” per a recent press release. Visitors will also have a chance to learn Monica’s top tidying tips at a booth sponsored by Method Home Products and experience a collection of Phoebe’s favorite things. And of course, what kind of a Friends-themed pop-up would it be without a recreation of Central Perk, complete with the legendary orange couch.

The month-long pop-up will take place at 76 Mercer Street in SoHo and will also include a retail store next door. The pop-up will be open from September 7 through October 6, and tickets are available now for $29.50.

And if you can’t get enough of the Friends nostalgia, you can bring it into your own home with Pottery Barn’s new “Friends” collection.
