The Entrance to the Hall of Fire

In the northern wing at the ground floor of Elrond's house is the Hall of Fire, no doubt named for its bright bonfires. There, Bilbo Baggins and Lindir trade riddles, and Elf-singers praise the beautiful Imladris, as do the elves at the upper levels. This is one of four crafting areas within Rivendell and it provides ovens and a cook trainer, but also various vendors offering supplies and services, as well as a barber.

"Frodo found himself walking with Gandalf. ‘This is the Hall of Fire’, said the wizard. ‘Here you will hear many songs and tales–if you can keep awake. But except on high days it usually stands empty and quiet, and people come here who wish for peace, and thought. There is always a fire here, all the year round, but there is little other light.’
As Elrond entered and went towards the seat prepared for him, elvish minstrels began to make sweet music. Slowly the hall filled, and Frodo looked with delight upon the many fair faces that were gathered together; the golden firelight played upon them and shimmered in their hair." — The Fellowship of the Ring, Tolkien
