Yes, this is really Adam Driver. The photo was taken on October 3, 2010, as he attended the after party for the opening of the Broadway show George Bernard Shaw's Mrs. Warren's Profession. This was in New York City, natch. Adam Driver was born in 1983, so he turned 27 the year this photo was taken. His breakthrough role in the TV show Girls happened in 2012, less than two years after this photo, and by 2015 he was playing bad guy Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
