ABOUT THE FORUM
"Always surround yourself with people you can learn from."
- Leopold Schmidt, Founder of the Olympus Hotel
The Tacoma Forum has moved into the Olympus Hotel, which was founded by Olympia Brewing Company owner, Leopold Schmidt in 1909. The original back bar, which was built in France by Franciscan Monks, remains the shining star of The Forum. Rumor has it that Leopold himself, who was always proud of the once "grandest hotel in Tacoma," continues to watch over the patrons of our establishment. Our philosophy at The Forum is to surround ourselves with the best staff, support our local liquor companies and serve the finest food while creating a meeting place that everyone can enjoy...even Leopold!
