Located on Bernard Street, Leith, Edinburgh, known as the thoroughfare, Chancho forms part of the buildings converted for pubs, cafes and publishing businesses.  This area has been preserved as an historical enclave as it formed part of the main coastal route around North Edinburgh and was once a stop on Leith’s electric tram line until 1955. This area is currently part of the Edinburgh’s tram development to re-enact the tram stop which will increase footfall to this area.
