Inside of the Script to Screen exhibit at Stage 48 you can find the actual Central Perk set from Friends. You can line up to take a picture on the couch. And if you’re interested in recreating a scene from the show before to volunteer when it’s showtime. Everything on the set except for the mugs, fake food, and Phoebe’s guitar was used during the run of the show.
The cappuccino behind the counter in Central Perk was first used on Full House in the Smash Club. Another fun fact is that Full House, Friends, and now Fuller House all filmed on the same soundstage.
