    Every gang needs a hangout spot.

    Fictional friend gangs get some of the coolest places to hang out. While IRL, you usually meet friends at someone's house or bar/restaurant, sitcoms explore all different possibilities.

    Even when they dabble in the familiar, they find a way to bring the place to life and make you wish you were there. I ranked out these 18 classic sitcom hangouts from where I'd least want to spend time to where I'd most love hanging out.
