"The passageway leading to Nearly Headless Nick’s party had been lined with candles, too, though the effect was far from cheerful: These were long, thin, jet-black tapers, all burning bright blue, casting a dim, ghostly light even over their own living faces. The temperature dropped with every step they took. As Harry shivered and drew his robes tightly around him, he heard what sounded like a thousand fingernails scraping an enormous blackboard."
—Description[src]

The Deathday Party Hall[2] (also known as the Deathday Party Room)[3] was one of the roomier dungeons at Hogwarts Castle.[1] The room was accessible via the Dungeon Staircase.[1]

History

On 31 October, 1992, this dungeon was where Sir Nicholas de Mimsy-Porpington's five-hundredth Deathday Party was held. Decorations for the event included several black velvet draperies, and a chandelier covered with Jet black candles with bright blue flames.[1]
