Stay in a 2BR/1BA apartment at a 1950s-inspired retro motel with as much personality as its owner, Nashville BBQ legend Jack Cawthon. Walk next door to Jack’s Bar-B-Que and try the best brisket and ribs in the city!
The story starts in 1831, when this site in Capitol Hill was home to the Tennessee State Penitentiary. The jail was moved in 1898, and the Governor divided the property. Over a hundred years later in 2013, Jack restored a corner of this 10-acre stretch and opened his third restaurant, Jack’s Bar-B-Que – now a Nashville landmark.
Since then, Jack acquired the land behind Jack’s Bar-B-Que and created McMillin Court, a 1950’s-inspired, 15-unit motel where you can gather with a group of nearly any size. Each unit at McMillin Court sleeps 6 people, with room for up to 90 guests total.
All just two minutes from Music City’s best attractions – including Bridgestone Arena, The Ryman, Country Music Hall of Fame and Honky Tonk Row. Head up the stairs at McMillin Court and the skyline views will show you how close you are to downtown!
Events find a one-of-a-kind home here, too. McMillin Court can host catered corporate gatherings, weddings, and other large-scale celebrations – all made better with a BBQ feast (provided by Jack’s Bar-B-Que, of course) under tent cover in the landscaped courtyard. Tell us what you’re looking for and Jack will take care of everything.
Stay, eat the city’s best BBQ, explore, and get to know one of Nashville’s most interesting revitalization projects!

INSIDE THE APARTMENT
Every apartment at McMillin Court has the same layout of two nearly identical bedrooms, each with a queen-size bed, and one bathroom. Two more guests can crash on the sleeper sofa in the living area.
All 6 guests can gather around the flat-screen or dig into a take-out BBQ at the dining nook with retro chairs.
Or prepare your own meals in a designer kitchen with granite countertops and appliances including a microwave, stovetop and small oven. A convenient shared bath has a shower/tub combo.
Explore Nashville’s rich history and unrivalled music scene! For a few measly dollars, you can grab an Uber or Lyft and travel a few minutes to the city’s most famed attractions, including Centennial Park, Capitol Hill, Bridgestone Arena, The Ryman, Country Music Hall of Fame and Honky Tonk Row.
Just across the street, you’ll find William Edmonson Park and a bus stop if you’d rather ride with the locals down Charlotte Avenue into the heart of Music City.
When you’ve worked up an appetite, Jack invites you to visit his landmark BBQ joint for a heaping plate of Texas beef brisket or St. Louis style ribs, or call in your order for easy pick-up to enjoy at home.
