Haven't tried yet but try making a light there and setting its brightness to 0 or maybe set its color to black and don't set the brightness to 0.

If that doesn't work then try somehow blocking the light with a brush (maybe you can even do it with an invisible one - not sure).
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Making a light would only add light :p

Really just make it dark like how places normally get dark - make sure light can't get to it. The compilation tools (specifically the RAD step) do some clever maths to work out how much light is where on the map. So if you put a wall in the way then there won't be any light (as far as I know doors don't block light but I could be wrong).

One thing I found out will make you, the player, very dark is to set the patch of ground you want to be dark as a func_wall. When you wall over it, you will turn black. I am going to use this to make a little corner super-ultra dark. Try it! Experiment by spawning a hostie on it, and they will be completely black.

Actually I'll add to this...

I have a room that's seemingly blocked off from light, but it's still bright. All my walls are func_walls.

How to make it dark?

Exactly. And from that I would guess that making a black light would make 'dark lighting' a.k.a. darkness. Or maybe it wouldn't I don't know. Maybe I'll try it out.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

Well the problem is nubbcake it's based on semi-realism, where light could go in real life it can go in CS. Almost. To a certain approximation anyway.
M d'V: Adding a zero strength light is like a lamp in a room that isn't turned on: it adds no light. I don't think CS (or any other software for that matter) has a concept of a negative light.
