A Journey Rooted in Passion
Colby Conklin, the driving force behind The Mayor Bar, moved to Birmingham at the age of 10, attended Oak Mountain High School, and has a Business Administration degree from the University of Montevallo. With a rich background in the restaurant industry, having worked at various establishments during high school and college, Colby’s career took off at Chuck's Fish in Tuscaloosa.

A Vision for Innovation
Imagine a dining experience that shatters the norms and brings a fresh, exciting approach to your favorite meals—this is the essence of The Mayor Bar. Fueled by a passion to innovate and elevate the dining scene, Colby set out to create a space that stands apart from the traditional full-service restaurant. Recognizing the challenges of today’s labor market, Colby envisioned a new path. The Mayor Bar embraces a fast casual/counter service model, stripping away the rigidity and formality that often bogs down dining out. Here, you’ll find lightning-fast service, unparalleled flexibility, and a laid-back, inviting atmosphere—all while enjoying top-notch food and drinks.
