Grace Hayes, legendary Las Vegas and Hollywood nightclub hostess of the 1940s and 1950s, died Wednesday at a convalescent home. She was 93. Forty years ago, Hayes operated the Las Vegas Strip's most chic nightclub, The Red Rooster. In its day, the nightclub catered to customers such as Howard Hughes, Benjamin (Bugsy) Siegel and a host of Hollywood movie stars. Before that, she owned and operated a movie stars' nightclub hangout called Grace Hayes' Lodge in the San Fernando Valley.
