We’ve seen several MOCs of the famous F.R.I.E.N.D.S. set Central Perk. This design is another version where the Central Perk is a cafe on the lower level and a pub on the upper level.
The design of lower level stays true to the official LEGO set 21319 and takes advantage of its unique shape to set itself apart from other usual rectangular modular buildings. The wall where the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. cast face is changed into removable glass panels for easy viewing and access so the builder can still recreate scenes from the TV show and maintain it’s playability.
The upper level starts of with a bar as a minifig enters the main door; then followed by some tables, comfy chairs and a pool table. It also has a wide screen TV great for watching sports. The small kitchen and toilet are just next to the bar, which are a necessity for any establishment. The pub also has an outdoor seating with a small area for live music.
The roof is a simple design but allow the builder an opportunity to further add floors, if they desire.
The design uses not only 2 sets of 21319 but several other pieces to complete the build. There are also several pieces from the second set that are not used which the creator may use for other MOCs. Please refer to the file (Central Perk Additional Parts List) which can be used to determine the additional parts needed after purchasing 2 sets of 21319.
Pros: The design pays respect to the original set and maintains it’s shape. In case the builder decides to go back to the original design, very little modifications will need to be done.
Cons: Due to the shape, it’s a bit of a challenge to fit the building in the usual city setting. But once it has its place, it adds a unique look and help diversify a city.
