The setup of the experience includes 18 rooms with the props and decors of “Friends” arranged in each room. The pop-up setting will have guests delving into the recreational and interactive elements of the apartment.

In the 90’s series, the TV characters Chandler, Monica, Phoebe, Joey, Rachel, and Ross all lived in the apartment, where they displayed how they handled everyday challenges and situations.

“Friends” spanned a period of ten years and went on to become one of the most revered TV episodic shows. However, it was not initially called “Friends.” The show’s organizers initially thought of it as “Insomnia Cafe,” “Friendship Like Us,” and “Six of One.”

Jennifer Aniston, who played Rachel on the show, once shared that she and her fellow cast members did not like the theme song, but they complied because they were instructed to accept it.

Courtney Cox, who played Monica, was said to be just like her TV character in real life. Just like Monica was a lover of cleanliness, and sometimes over the top, Cox was said to have the neatest dressing room.
