Alcohol was prohibited on Pitcairn prior to 1991, It was then legalised and a license was then introduced to purchase and consume alcohol on the island.

In 2009, the alcohol licence was abolished. The Islanders and visitors are no longer required to purchase a licence for consumption.

The Government now offers a Commercial License for Bars, Clubs, Restaurants & Cafes to sell alcohol.

There is one Cafe & Bar, Christian's Cafe open on Fridays from 6:30PM till late.

The Government Store on the island sells alcohol and tobacco at duty free prices.
