The Gate has 19 venues spread across three floors, including a 16-screen Cineworld Cinema and Aspers Casino. The Gate is also next to Newcastle's Chinatown; there is an entrance on Stowell Street. The Gate building was built to replace the 35-year-old, 7-storey Newgate House, which was home to the prolific music venue; The Mayfair club. Mood Bar opened on 28 November 2002, the same time as The Gate.
The 19,235 m2, £80 million venue was built by Land Securities and the 12-metre-tall (39 ft) sculpture outside, "Ellipsis Eclipses", was designed by Danny Lane. The 24-metre-high (79 ft) glass façade was designed by Space Decks Limited. The Odeon Cinema (later Empire, now Cineworld) was built to replace the 71-year-old Odeon/Paramount cinema on Pilgrim Street, which after the Gate's opening remained disused until its demolition in 2017. The Gate provided 400 new jobs when opened and a further 600 during construction.
In 2010 Jamie Ritblat's property company, Delancey, bought The Gate in a £900 million package of properties from PropInvest Group, in partnership with the Royal Bank of Scotland. In 2012 The Gate was sold to the Crown Estate for £60 million.
