They don’t know that we know they know we know, but you could spend a night in Monica’s apartment. The Friends Experience has opened in New York City and Chicago, giving visitors the chance to step inside an interactive world that looks and feels like the one where Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Ross, Chandler and Joey lived. And right now, travel reservation site Booking.com offers fans the opportunity to spend the night in a set re-creation of Rachel and Monica’s apartment.
The Booking.com-sponsored sleepover allows guests to stay in private one-bedroom accommodations, with amenities including dinner and drinks, Phoebe’s Cab Escape Room experience, a scavenger hunt, and breakfast (with coffee, of course!) at Central Perk in the morning. Guests will also enjoy a private tour with a photographer to capture all of the significant pictures with spot-on backdrops and props, such as the purple apartment door and Chandler and Joey’s recliners.

“Could we BE anymore excited? Tag your best travel buddy who you’d like to spend an overnight at @FriendsTheExp in NYC with,” Booking.com tweeted.
The Friends Experience sleepover is available to book for a one-night overnight stay for two for just $19.94, in honor of the year the show premiered. However, this experience is around for a very limited time. In fact, there will only be two slots available. On Friday, May 21st, 2021, at 10:00 a.m. ET, bookings will open for two dates: Sunday, May 23, or Monday, May 24. Reservations will be on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are interested and can make it to NYC on one of those dates, set a reminder and get to the Booking.com reservation page.
If you don’t snag a spot, don’t take it too hard. You can still visit the Friends Experience the next time you’re in New York or Chicago. And, if you can’t make it there, you can safely shop at the online store. You know, when you’re on a break.
