‘It’s important to get together with people in your neighbourhood, share stories and have a laugh,’ he added.
The Railway Hotel will reopen in January following a number of refurbishments.
Meanwhile, Mick is set to part ways with Triple M after 11 years.
The Crackerjack star, 55, made a statement earlier this month revealing he was moving on less than a year after his co-host Jane Kennedy quit their drive show.
‘After 11 amazing years at Triple M I’ve decided it’s time to move on to a new chapter in my working life,’ began the father-of-two.

Mick continued, ‘It just feels the time is right to explore some exciting new creative opportunities that are presenting themselves for the years ahead.’
The Late Show alum joked, ‘I want to say thanks to the amazing producing team who put out an amazing show each and every day, despite my frequent showbiz ar**hole type antics.’
The shock announcement comes after his former co-host, Jane Kennedy, left their show earlier this year.
Describing Molloy’s departure as his ‘last drinks,’ head of Triple M Mike Fitzpatrick said: ‘Mick is a radio pioneer, one of Australia’s greatest performers and it’s been a privilege to have worked with him at Triple M again.’
