Downshadow was the name commonly used to refer to the upper levels of Undermountain in Waterdeep. As of 1479 DR, the top levels of Undermountain were mostly cleared of monsters although some creatures still roamed the halls and many magical traps remained active.[1]

In the years after the Spellplague, the southernmost cavern in the upper levels turned into a sort of village inhabited by outcasts, criminals, and down-on-their-luck adventurers exploring the lower levels. The cavern even had crude taverns and merchants who sold questionable goods.[1]
