Friends Pop-Up in SF

Basically it's a chance for you to act with Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox, record yourself singing "Smelly Cat," and pose at Central Perk.
Thanks Danna for taking me and telling me about the pop-up!

What's the pop-up? 
A tribute to the TV show Friends.

Where in SF?
AT&T Store
1 Powell St, 
San Francisco, CA 94102

Basically, it's at Union Square across the Westfield mall, and near the cablecar station.

What is there to do? 
Check out everything Friends related!
Upon immediately entering the store, you can see photo ops with the famous fountain in the opening credits, doors to Monica's apartment, and a group cast photo.


If you go upstairs, you have the chance to record a scene with Rachel and Monica! After doing the scene, you can record it from a TV. But they don't send you the recorded scene, I guess that would be a lot of data. The replica of the apartment is pretty spot on!

Famous Joey quote:

You can also record yourself singing "Smelly Cat." The soundbooth and microphone all made it seem super legit.

Also upstairs is a store with some merch, and a recreation of Central Perk:

You can be a barista:

Or pretend to be Phoebe (even though I am dressed like Miguel from Coco)

Check out various props:

 And take more photos:


If you're in SF and like Friends, I would definitely check out the pop-up! There was a lot to see and do, and the highlight is definitely getting to act with Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox. Random strangers and the employees cheered after Danna and I and our fill-ins acted a scene. I have no idea how long it'll be there for, but it wasn't too busy on a weekend so I don't think too many folks know about this.
