Fans of the popular American sitcom Friends are in for a treat soon. News has broken that the people behind a crowdfunding project to bring the first Central Perk Cafe to Singapore has been confirmed.
Announced on the official Central Perk SG Facebook page, the upcoming cafe will be themed according to the one Friends characters are often seen in. The crowdfunding is still happening on IndieGoGo at the time of writing and you can chip in your support starting from just US$7 for a cup of beverage to a hefty US$7,300 lifetime membership that entitles you to free coffee (1 per day) as long they stay open, VIP Priority Table and invitation to events.
If everything goes well, Central Perk SG is expected to open in March 2017, a somewhat long wait for cafe-hoppers and fans. The potential owners are, however, looking to bring the opening date closer with interested investors and partners.
