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 offers a commercial license for bars, clubs, restaurants and cafes to sell alcohol.

There is one cafe and 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.
