Dog+Cat = no sleep!

I have a 2 year old Calico cat and a 5 month old Cocker Spaniel who just love each other and are always playing together - which is great, but not at 2am!
Our cat has always slept in our room and once we got the puppy he slept in his crate on the floor in our room. This worked very well for the first few months. Lately though the puppy does not want to sleep in his crate past 5am. He starts whinning and wants to get out. Since he is now house trained, we decided to try and let him sleep out of the crate in our room with a baby gate blocking the door so he can't go too far. This didn't work because since the cat is in our room too it was play time all night!

During the day the puppy is confined to the kitchen area with his crate, water and toys. Is it too late to have him sleep at night in the kitchen as well? Or should I put him in the basement at night (the basement is finished with carpet and a couch other than that it's empty)?
