New York liquor laws

So, I'm writing a story based in New York and it occurred to me a little late that I know nearly nothing about New York except that it has some tall buildings.

Then I figured I could fake most of it, except the part where the liquor laws come into play.

The question is: Do you have to be 21 to get into ALL places that serve liquor? For instance, I think in some states live music venues allow minors on the premises, and you just get ID-ed when you order a drink. Also, what about working in a place that serves liquor?

My character is 18. So if it's illegal, he's going to have to lie his ass off, and I'll work it into the plot if it kills me. If it's legal, I will be able to save myself a whole lot of headache.

ETA: I LOVE YOU ALL! THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!
