Today, the iconic TV series Friends celebrates its 25th anniversary, and Dubai is marking the occasion in fashionable and iconic style, along with other cities around the world.
Visitors to Downtown Dubai can spot the Central Perk set up on a floatie right on The Dubai Fountain against the backdrop of Burj Khalifa, where it will stay for a month. The Friends Central Perk Cafe set includes the signature orange couch, the red rug, coffee table and other accessories seen in the highly popular TV series!
Tonight only, the iconic Burj Khalifa will come to life with a specially themed Friends LED show at 8:30pm and again at 9:30pm to celebrate the show's anniversary. The signature theme song of Friends – 'I'll Be There for You' by the American duo The Rembrandts will be choreographed for a synchronised performance on The Dubai Fountain with the Burj Khalifa LED show.
With this, Burj Khalifa joins other landmarks such as the Empire State Building, The London Eye, and Madrid Royal Palace, among others, in welcoming the Central Perk Café.
