COULD this BE any more exciting? A Central Perk Cafe is set to open in Manchester this summer.

Primark has announced that it will be opening a fully branded Central Perk Café in partnership with Warner Bros. in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the popular US TV show.

Opening on June 12, Central Perk Café at Primark Manchester will be the first to open on the UK high street.

The café will feature a New York-inspired menu, exclusive branded products and an opportunity to get a photo on 'the' orange sofa.

It will also use compostable cups and ethically sourced coffee beans, as part of its Primark Cares initiative.

After visiting the Central Perk Cafe, customers can also visit a Friends shopping area which will stock Friends-themed items including clothing and mugs and a number of items exclusive to the Manchester store.

Tim Kelly, Primark’s director of new business development, said: “We are hugely excited to be bringing the first branded Central Perk Café in fashion retail in the UK to the British high street. "Customers can relax and have fun there whilst also enjoying our amazing fashion at amazing prices in our Manchester store.”
