  1. YES. There is one in my hometown Peshawar, Pakistan. Though not as exactly as it was in the drama, it is designed with a little bit of modifications and a little bit of cultural touch. Here are some pictures.

  2. Yes, there is one in Kolkata named “ F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Cafe”. It has the classic orange sofa 🙂 Joey’s white dog is there. 🙂 And the purple door in Monica’s apartment.
    F.R.I.E.N.D.S Cafe Just Opened In Kolkata And It’s Every Fan’s Dream Come True!
    Go ahead people and have fun there.
    Edit: I recently went to Bhubaneswar and my friend knowing how crazy I am about F.R.I.E.N.D.S series he took me to a place in Chandrasekharpur called Central Perk 7.
    Oh I can’t describe how elated I was to be there. The setting was perfect. I sat on the orange sofa and clicked away as many pics. The food was yummy. And the mocktails creative. They named the drinks after the characters in the series. I ordered the Monica’s Mango pango and my friend ordered Ms. Chanandlar Bong. We had Barbeque chicken pasta. The taste could beat an Italian restaurant .
    And to top it all, they have the show running on the TV 24×7.
    Here’s the zomato link for it:

    The Wi-Fi password of Friends café is “iloverachel” because he loves Rachel so much. He named his son Joey.
    And of course Hugsy is very popular: everyone wants to hug him!

    Also, Du Xin built J&C’s room next to the café.

    For those who are thrilled to plan a visit: first I shall say welcome to China! Below you may find helpful address information (both in English and in Chinese, in case you only ask about Central Perk to Chinese people and they have no clue) and maps of the three branches:
    Not for a business intention. Only because we are all so obsessed with the show and the place is so worth (re-)visiting. I’ve been there (the Beijing one) for like at least 10 times, and now being abroad I’m kinda feeling that Central Perk is “a mothership calling you home” (said by our beloved Phoebe if I remember right). I do miss Gunther, Rachel, the orange couch, and Hugsy. Really do.

    Central perk in Dubai. Jumeirah 3, Near spinneys.
    With the cafe following the theme of the popular coffee shop on-set the famous TV show Friends, Central Perk managed to create a major buzz with its opening. With plush orange armchairs just like on the show, and the perfect relaxed ambience for a fun evening out, this cafe only almost manages to live up to the hype around it.The food is decent, although the pasta and the pizza here are mentionable. The hazelnut Frappuccino is one of the favorite drinks here. The service (where required) is pretty efficient, and the staff is helpful and friendly. The best dishes on the menu of this cafe are their delectable desserts, and my friends and I make it a point to visit Central Perk for atleast the triple chocolate cake, the chocolate bomb andthe cheesecake, all of which are delicious enough to satisfy any sweet craving.
    Here are some more photos,

  7. There’s a Central Perk Cafe in Cardiff, Wales. It’s in Donald St and is rated 17/32 for excellence on TripAdvisor.
    According to media reports in February 2018, Warner Bros have secured a copyright to use the name Central Perk for “coffee shop and cafe services.”
    Until a few years ago there were 3 franchised Central Perks in Liverpool but they all closed with short notice.
