While browsing on Instagram for places to have coffee and rest our legs in Shanghai I found a picture of something that looked like the Central Perk fictional logo, so I immediately clicked on it and that's how I found out my favorite fictional hangout place was real!
There's a tv showing episodes of the sitcom all day long, free wi-fi and although there's no Phoebe singing "Smelly Cat" the atmosphere really takes you back to that fictional place you have always wished it existed.
It's amazing that 10 years ago the last episode aired and the Friends' myth is still very alive, at least in Shanghai!
