Of course, the latest establishment is just one among many celebrity-owned bars and restaurants that adorn downtown Nashville. This bustling area boasts venues supporting the names of country artists such as Luke Bryan, Alan, Jackson, Miranda Lambert, and many more. Additionally, bars by Luke Combs and Eric Church are set to open.
According to a press release, building plans are being carried out in accordance with Nashville’s Broadway Historic Preservation Overlay, aiming to honor the rich history of Music City.
“We’re looking forward to having a place in Nashville that we call home” Jon Bon Jovi said in a statement. “When Big Plan Holdings and the team of Josh and Tara Joseph asked us if we were interested, it wasn’t because we were just another rock band, it was because we are a band with deep roots in Nashville. We have had wonderful times in Nashville recording several albums and working with some of the finest people in all the music business. I can’t wait to toast all of Broadway and get to know our neighbors!”
“We feel it will be great to disrupt downtown Nashville in a positive way. Partnering with Jon was natural for many reasons, and we could not be more excited for Nashville and all its great visitors,” stated the owners.
The recognition celebrates not only Bon Jovi’s historic musical contributions but also his significant philanthropic endeavors.

Jon Bon Jovi has made an undeniable impact in the entertainment industry; however, his efforts extend far beyond the realm of music. In 2006, he founded the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation, a charitable organization committed to breaking the cycles of hunger, poverty, and homelessness. The foundation’s mission is to empower individuals affected by these challenges through vital programs such as food assistance, affordable housing, and support for social services and job training.
Through this foundation, JBJ Soul Homes was born, offering four stories of supportive housing tailored for homeless adults seeking stability. Additionally, the development features community area, administrative offices, and retail space to foster a holistic support system.
The side of the building reads, “None of us are home until all of us are home.”
The description of the docuseries, directed and executive produced by Gotham Chopra, reads, “As thrilling as the story of a once-in-a-lifetime talent is, it is even more rare that a legend like Jon Bon Jovi lets the world into his most vulnerable moments while he’s still living them.”
Get ready for the exciting documentary and stay tuned for updates on JBJ’s Nashville!
