But I must concede that there is a possibility that this was a time cut and not just a camera angle change. Therefore it is possible that the beer tank room could be on a lower deck. It would make more sense. However, I still believe the transporter room to be on the iBridge deck. And possibly medical. I'm still analyzing. More details to come.
Actually, a Transporter Room on the Command Deck would make sense to me for simple access reasons.

I imagine a Transporter Room, the Bridge and possibly a conference/ready room on that deck would be practical as propositions.

Among other things, it would allow Kirk to leave the Bridge, go to the Transporter Room, and escort guests into a conference Room for negotiations, meetings etc.

It's also possible that one of the rooms on the Command Deck (what I'm calling the A-Deck/Deck 1) to be the Restroom Facilities.

Of course, to actually establish this on screen would be to break one of the biggest Star Trek traditions: never showing the location of the restrooms. Yes, I know we saw one in Star Trek V, but that was in the Brig, and not a general facility.

I think one of the things that may be missing, to clarify that different decks and time compression are involved, is that all of the Corridor decks were portrayed by the same set, with no change between decks.

What they could have done, was dress the set differently (via Colors, Signage and/or Lining) to signify what deck they were on.

They could also have shown a number in the corridor denoting which deck they were on. That would have helped. Also, there was another thing I noticed. If you'll look back at my frame-by-frame, you'll notice that when Kirk, Uhura, and Bones enter the bridge through the door from the corridor, the front of the bridge is to their imediate right. Now, they turned right to enter the bridge from the corridor. That means that the front of the bridge is facing the same direction that they came from in the corridor. At the end of the corridor, where they turned the corner to get to the bridge entrance, there appears to be another perpendicular corridor. If it is actually a corridor, it would go in front of the viewindow on the bridge. I may be wrong. It's late and I'm tired. But I'll watch the scene again. Either way, something just doesn't add up in that scene.

Well they did scenes by scenes so fast they didn't think anyone would notice.

But if they make another film or have a tv show boy they better get to details.

That's what I figurerd too. The pacing was so fast that they assumed nobody would notice that the interior sets didn't match up with the exterior design. They didn't count on me...the Supreme Overlord King of All Nitpickers!! Mwaaahahahahahaha!

I think that is...would have been a great idea! Imagine trying to find one's way around on a ship without indications as to where one is currently located.
I just realized that for someone who has just been placed on the "E", Kirk seemed to know his way around fairly well with minimal directions. Could be applied to many of the other crew as well.

It seems quite possible there's a transporter room on the Bridge Deck but if it's large enough then it would seem a sensible thing to have.

Although I don't recall large Deck numbers frequently being shown in past Trek - I'm wondering why we suddenly seem to need them now. Sure there were little decals on doors that the writing was illegible on but no large print style 'DECK 5'.

(unless you count the oddity of having them in STV, where they were in a turbolift shaft that the turbolift itself would normally obscure - talk about weird, and also talk about times when the sets don't match the ship, 70+ decks that go up from the bowels rather than down from the top?).

And even more interestingly we actually see Kirk looking for directions in the film - to find Uhura - and then going to where she was.

Sorry I haven't gotten to the more detailed analysis yet. I've actually been a little busier than I expected I would be. But because of the snow and generally jucky weather we're having around here, I doubt I'll be working for the next few days. So I'll get down to it as soon as I can. So far, I still believe that the transporter room is on the bridge deck. I also think the bridge deck is quite a bid larger on the inside than it looks from the outside. More details on the way.

Here's a high res screen shot of Kirk and Uhura as they run down the corridor to the iBridge door. This is an uncut shot that shows them run around a corner, down a corridor, and onto the iBridge through the entrance door. You'll notice that there is a whole lotta room in that corridor. There is also another corridor or at least a door across from the iBridge door. As well as a corridor that apparently runs in front of the iBridge - which we know is not possible because of the pullout shot through the viewindow that clearly shown nothing in front of the iBridge. Apparently, the corridor Uhura and Kirk are running down also continues past the iBridge door as well. It appears that there is a large amount of space on the iBridge deck. Just from that shot you can see at least 3 corridors as well as more doors to more rooms. Yet the exterior of the ship would seem to show that there isn't that much room on that deck. Unless the ship is the size of a Star Destroyer, that is.
