"Off-license" or "off-licence" is a British (or British English) term, being a place licensed to sell wines, liquors, etc. for consumption off the premises, as opposed to a "pub" or public house which sold them for consumption on the premises, i.e., in the bar. Sometimes off-license shops are attached to pubs. In the US, one would simply say "liquor store" or"package store" or something similar, rather than off-license.
