The friends experience atlanta

I try my best to start this blog from a place of gratitude. I have been sleeping in Airbnbs around the world for the better part of the last year, but I’m not just obsessed with traveling. I love to write. I love to share my thoughts, my ideas, and my insights.

FRIEND

One of the most popular sitcoms of all time, Friends has somehow managed to transcend multiple generations of viewers since it first aired on NBC in 1994. The 10-season series, which ended in 2004, has become a hot comodity for streaming networks—Netflix payed $100 million for the rights to the series in 2015, and HBO Max, where it currently resides, paid more than $400 million for the show’s rights in 2019. This spring’s reunion special only further ignited interest in the sitcom, and now fans, new and old, casual and diehard, can visit a pop-up experience in metro Atlanta that promises a chance to step inside the world of Friends’ ludicrously large apartments.

The Friends Experience, which is produced by Warner Brothers and entertainment experience company Superfly X, is a photo-friendly, Instagrammable experience in the same vein as Candytopia, Slime City, Santa’s Fantastical, and other pop-ups that have come through Atlanta in the past several years. (It’s actually located next to the latter event, in a mostly-empty stretch of strip mall on Mount Vernon Highway in Sandy Springs.) Part photo op and part mini Friends museum, the experience is filled with nostalgia, favorite quotes and jokes, props and costumes, and detailed replicas of Chandler and Joey’s living room, Monica and Rachel’s kitchen, Central Perk, and a few other small locations (think various hallways and the windowsill of Monica’s apartment, complete with a “giant poking device”).
