FRA Business Class Lounge Access, with guest?

I'll be traveling in Business Class from FRA-ORD, on an afternoon LH flight. At FRA, I assume I'll have access to a Business Class Lounge. Which is the better or preferred Business Class Lounge to access while waiting for my flight or ORD?

Also, I am traveling with my mother and brother, however have opted to fly Y. Will I be able to guest one or both with me to the Business Class Lounge? Thanks for your help.

No guests for C tickets.
You can however purchase guest tickets at the LH ticket counter. Not worth it IMHO !

Thank you for the reply. Are there several Business loungers, or just one? If several, is there a preference? Thanks!

There's currently only one LH flight from FRA to ORD (LH430 dep. 10.25am) and the only afternoon flight to ORD is a UA codeshare. If the latter it usually departs from an A gate and the most convenient and possibly the best Business Lounge is the Tower Lounge.

Thanks. Our flight is not for some time, not till September. At that time, there is a LH flight departing FRA around 5:35 PM to ORD. Thanks!

I believe this is only available to FTLs (M&M *S) and SENs (M&M *G for SEN lounges) but not to holders of Business tickets.

LH flights to the US depart mostly from A gates but some from C gates. If an A gate the Tower Lounge is the best option as I already mentioned. If departing from a C gate there are a couple of Business lounges which are quite nice.
